(Indio, CA) – Do you live in the Coachella Valley and are you looking for that first job, a new career or just to change to the 9 to 5 routine? If so, the 24th Annual Valley-wide Employment Expo may have the perfect opportunity for you.
The expo is free and will be held Thursday, Sept. 12 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino Special Events Center, located at 84-245 Indio Springs Parkway in Indio.
“The Valley-wide Employment Expo is one of the largest job fairs that I know of in the Coachella Valley,” said Supervisor V. Manuel Perez. “As one of Riverside County’s signature events for employers and job-seekers, the employment expo will provide a valuable opportunity for people seeking careers, as well as recruitment opportunities for local businesses and government agencies.”
Job seekers can expect nearly 100 employers and exhibitors from the hospitality, retail, banking, gaming, education and government sectors. Job opportunities range from entry level to upper management. For human resource managers, it’s also an ideal time to connect with top talent, fill job vacancies and gain valuable exposure for the hiring company.
“This is going to be a great event, for job seekers and employers, as we connect local businesses and organizations with a talented workforce,” said Workforce Development Board chairperson Jamil Dada.
Parking for the event is free. For job seekers who need help getting to the expo, shuttle service is available every half hour from the Sunline 111 Transfer Center in Indio starting at 8:30 am.
