The Fall Job Fair organized by the Idaho Department of Labor will have more than 50 employers ready to fill nearly 1,500 positions. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 11 at Real Life Ministries, 1866 N. Cecil Road in Post Falls.
Employers continue to add jobs as the economy remains strong. Businesses registered for the event report almost twice as many openings as last year.
While health care, manufacturing and service industries continue to see the highest demand, there are a range of jobs in all jobs sectors and at all skill levels. Openings vary from entry level to senior management and full-time to seasonal.
Employers from northern Idaho and the Spokane area are expected to attend the event. For a complete list of employers scheduled to attend, see the Idaho Department of Labor online calendar at labor.idaho.gov.
The event is free to attend. Job applicants are encouraged to bring a resume, dress to meet potential employers and be prepared to speak directly with company recruiters and human resources personnel.
Customers with disabilities who need a reasonable accommodation to participate can contact Stacey Hanlon at (208) 457-8789 ext. 3947. To access the Idaho Relay Service for the deaf and hard of hearing, dial 711.
