This event is an excellent opportunity for employers to meet potential employees with a variety of skill sets, from experienced professionals to talented entry level individuals. Orange County’s goal is to provide a Job Fair where each employer leaves with several possible candidates for hire.

The Job and Resource Fair will be open to the public and door prizes will be awarded. Please visit www.ncworks.gov for assistance with resume building, interview tips and a host of other useful job search topics. Please be sure to register on NCWorks.gov, prior to April 6.  

For assistance with registering on NCWorks.gov, please visit the DSS office in Hillsborough or the NCWorks Career Center at 503 West Franklin Street in Chapel Hill.

This marks the fifth community Job Fair sponsored by DSS.  During the September 2015 event, more than 100 employers served hundreds of residents who were seeking employment opportunities.  Several people were employed as a result of the job fair experience.

Employers who are interested in participating in the Job Fair need to reserve their space now. Booth space, parking, private offices to conduct interviews, Internet access, and lunch will be provided at no charge. Applicants will have access to a computer lab to complete online applications.
