DALLAS, TX - Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne has annouced a North Texas Job fair hosted by her office at the Irving Convention Center on July 15 from 1-6pm. The Congresswoman will be joined by over 40 State Representatives, State Senators, and local Mayors... including our very own Mayor Fleury! Over 130 businesses and counting are participating in the area like Toyota, Amazon and American Airlines who are looking to hire employees.
"I’m excited to co-host the North Texas Job Fair on July 15th," said Mayor Fleury, "Almost every business owner I know has spoken to me about their need for employees. As unemployment benefits end June 26th, we are supporting North Texas to reconnect as many people as we can with jobs."
"While meeting with businesses in TX-24, I am constantly told about hiring shortages and the employment difficulties that have been brought on by the pandemic. We have businesses who survived the pandemic only to be forced to close from lack of workers," said Van Duyne.
"We know that enhanced federal unemployment benefits end here in Texas on June 26, and our goal is to make sure that every person in North Texas has access to a job. This job fair is about empowering North Texans with opportunities, from individuals stating a career in an entry level position to executives looking for their next challenge. No one who wants to work hard and provide for their family should be without a job, and we are here to make finding that job a little easier on North Texans."
The Congresswoman has created MyNTXJob.com so people who are interested in attending, or additional businesses who may want to participate are able to get more information and receive alerts and reminders about the event. As the date of the job fair draws nearer, the website will serve as a digital hub for some businesses to link the jobs they have available.
Rep. Van Duyne is proud to have gathered a bipartisan group of mayors and legislators to join forces to invite individuals all over North Texas to participate. It is our hope that anyone in need of employment or considering a career change will join us in Irving on July 15.
