LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Eight Henderson-area employers that are currently hiring will speak with job seekers about available positions during a free virtual job fair starting at 9 a.m. on Friday.

Employers participating in the virtual job fair are Amazon Reliability and Maintenance Engineering, Arroweye, Barclays, Keolis, Marksman Security, RDI, the City of Henderson Police Department, and the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department.

Job seekers must register online at nvcareercenter.org/henderson2020 by Thursday at noon to receive a link to participate in the virtual job fair. Each registered job seeker will receive a unique online link and instructions on how to access and navigate the virtual platform.

A recording of the virtual job fair and employer presentations will be made available after the conclusion of the online event.

“Because of unprecedented times of unemployment in our community combined with our new normal of social distancing, we knew we needed to reimagine our popular job fair and create a virtual environment for job seekers to meet with local employers and learn about available job openings in the Henderson area,” said Commissioner Gibson.

“As the pandemic rages on and unemployment skyrockets, we have to use every tool in our toolbox to help working families,” said Congresswoman Susie Lee. “While the job market may feel bleak, there are Henderson businesses hiring right now, which is why job fairs like this are so important as a resource to connect Nevadans with employers. I’m proud to join Councilwoman Romero, Commissioner Gibson, Nevada JobConnect and One-Stop Career Center in launching this virtual job fair to help southern Nevada’s working families.”

The virtual job fair is a partnership between Congresswoman Susie Lee, Clark County Commissioner Jim Gibson, Henderson Councilwoman Michelle Romero, the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) and Workforce Connections’ One-Stop Career Center.
