Strong Job Market Brings Hundreds of Jobs to Spring Hiring Event

The Spring Hiring Event organized by the Idaho Department of Labor will have more than 60 employers eager to fill more than 700 job openings. The event will be held Wednesday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will take place at Real Life Ministries, 1866 N. Cecil Road in Post Falls.

The healthy economy is good news for job seekers, which means there are plenty of jobs to choose from in a variety of industries. Jobs in manufacturing and construction have been especially difficult to fill and vacancies are at a 10-year high. Health care, food service and accommodation continue to be some of the fastest-growing industries.

The Spring Hiring Event will host employers from northern Idaho and the Spokane area. For a complete list of employers scheduled to attend, see the Idaho Department of Labor online calendar at

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 HR 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.
