Connecting Those Who Need Jobs With Job Openings

There are around 728,000 people in Denton County, with an unemployment rate of 3.2% (April 2015). This means about 23,322 people are unemployed. And when we say people, we could be talking about your aunt, best friend, neighbor or the man you just walked across the crosswalk with. Serve Denton is entering into this space by providing a job fair for the Denton community. The purpose of this event is to connect people who need jobs with businesses who have job openings!

Local nonprofit agencies like Vision Ministries, Health Services of North Texas and Giving Hope, Inc. will also attend the job fair to provide information about their services to job seekers. These local businesses and nonprofit agencies will be giving 20-minute seminars throughout the day on topics like Banking 101; Your Resume is a Marketing Tool, Not a Biography; How to Apply & Interview for Jobs; and Getting a Job with a Troubled Past. There will also be an interview room on-site for employers to go through the interview process with applicants. The faster we can help people find jobs, the better.

We want all job seekers to be able to take part in this event, so there is no cost to attend. Job seekers are encouraged to dress professionally and bring plenty of copies of their resume!
