Local workforce development organization Mesquite Works will be holding its third Job Fair of 2018 on Wednesday, August 22 from 9 am to 1 pm at the Rising Star Sports Ranch in the Grand Ballroom at 333 N. Sandhill Blvd. in Mesquite.
At this event job applicants will be able to introduce themselves to area employers, present a resume, discuss job openings and even arrange for an interview.
All new to this job fair will be a special opportunity aimed at businesses and employers throughout the region. Prior to the job fair’s 9:00 am opening, a special ‘Coffee and Treats’ event will be held at 8 am for employers only.
Speakers from workforce development organizations like Nevada Job Connects, Silver State Works, Workforce Innovations for New Nevada (WINN), Workforce Connections and Vegas PBS will be presenting information about their programs.
