Area job hunters can connect with employers with current vacancies at a drive-thru job and information fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 26, at the Henrico Government Center, 4301 E. Parham Road.
Coordinated by the Capital Region Workforce Partnership, the Spring Back Employment and Resource Fair will include public and private employers and will offer participants information about employment resources and opportunities in the Richmond region.
Community agencies also will be available to provide information about educational programs, workforce support services and summer resources and programs available for adults, young people and families. Care kits with COVID-19 safety and vaccination information will be distributed as well.
Space remains for employers interested in participating. Tables, tents and other resources will be provided. Employers are encouraged to register and reserve a space.
Brian Davis, executive director of the Capital Region Workforce Partnership, noted that extended benefits to support out-of-work individuals during the pandemic will be expiring in September.
“This is a great time for employers who are hiring to connect with potential candidates,” Davis said. “It’s also a great time to make people throughout the region aware of the resources that are available to help them on their reemployment journey.”
