Community Job Fair Celebrates the Power of Work
Event will feature dozens of employers and is open to the public

CLEARWATER, FLA. – Dozens of employers with a wide variety of jobs to fill will participate in a community job fair hosted by Goodwill Industries-Suncoast. The event will take place at the EpiCenter at St. Petersburg College, 13805 58th St. North, Clearwater, 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., May 9.

Job seekers who pre-register for the fair will receive early admission, plus access to a wide array of free job-related services – such as resume development and interview techniques – through Goodwill’s Job Connection Center. Participants can also enroll in Goodwill’s new Back To Your Future program, a free service designed to help job seekers plan their career goals and map out steps to reaching those goals.

The Job Fair will also feature virtual interviews and “meet and greets” with some of the area’s top employers, plus a Job Trends discussion panel at 11 a.m.

Both employers and job seekers can register to attend at www.goodwill-suncoast.org/community-job-fair

This is one of dozens of job fairs being hosted by Goodwill agencies across the nation during Goodwill Industries Week, May 7-13. Every year during the first full week of May, Goodwill agencies across the United States and Canada celebrate the power of work through local events and promotions.
