HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- As Texas reopens, economists believe it'll bring more jobs.

ABC13 partnered with Workforce Solutions Thursday to host a virtual job fair. More than 700 jobs are available with eight different companies.

Some of the jobs in Thursday's event pay $20 an hour. Some of the industries with open positions include law enforcement, sales, and leisure and hospitality.

During the event, we also have an ABC13 viewer hotline, where you can call for help with interviews, resume, education, and job advice. The number is 832-849-0480.
