Clark County Commissioners Jim Gibson, Tick Segerblom, and Marilyn Kirkpatrick will host the first large-scale, in-person job fair since the start of the pandemic at the Las Vegas Convention Center’s new West Hall Expansion on Friday, July 9, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Summer Job Fair will feature employers from major hotel properties and businesses, representing industries such as hospitality, logistics, manufacturing, local government, and customer service. Each employer has multiple positions available with competitive wages. The job fair is free to all Nevadans.
Job seeker registration is now open
By pre-registering, job seekers will receive important information about parking, updates on participating employers, and other information. Walk-ins are also welcome the day of the job fair but pre-registration is highly recommended. The Summer Job Fair is in partnership with the Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation (DETR), Workforce Connections’ One-Stop Career Centers, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
“Now is the time for interested job seekers to discover that perfect employment opportunity,” said Commission Vice Chairman Gibson. “The weather is not the only thing that is HOT this summer, so is our labor market! This Summer Job Fair will bring more than 100 local employers that will be offering an incredible selection of job openings. We want to encourage anyone who is receiving unemployment benefits to act now before it is too late.”
“We are excited to have so many companies looking for employees that are offering good jobs with great wages,” said Commissioner Segerblom. “This Summer Job Fair makes the job hunt easy because so many career opportunities will be under one roof. We want to help make getting back into the job market as easy as possible.”
“We still have a lot of folks out of work and we want them to re-enter the job market before their unemployment benefits run out,” said Commission Chairman Kirkpatrick. “The time is now to find a new career as it is a job seeker market.”
