1,000 jobs up for grabs in Houston area and some require no degree or experience

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, ABC13 hosted a virtual job fair that highlighted Hispanic leaders who changed the labor force and offered ways to get a job quickly.

On Thursday, ABC13 partnered with Workforce Solutions for the event. For nearly a year and a half, we've hosted this weekly job fair.

You can apply for jobs on the phone, social media, or the state's website.

So far, more than 4,400 people have applied, and hundreds have landed jobs because of these job fairs.

This week, we have about 1,000 jobs, with some paying more than $100,000.

There are jobs that require bachelor degrees. Other immediate hire positions require only a high school education and no other experience.

Workforce Solutions works with companies that are looking to hire quickly. If you apply during the event, you could have an interview in days.

In addition to offering jobs, we took a look at Hispanic leaders, including Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, union leaders who helped improve conditions for workers that still impact us today.

If you're looking for other career advice, including help with daycare, learning new skills, or interview practice, we have an ABC13 viewer hotline, where you can call and get free help. The number is 832-849-0480.

To preview the jobs, visit the Workforce Solutions website, and look for the "as seen on ABC13" section.
