ABC13 hosts virtual job fair featuring more than 2,000 jobs

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- ABC13 partnered with Workforce Solutions Thursday to host a virtual job fair, where job seekers could learn about more than 2,000 openings.

Many of these jobs are immediate hire positions, meaning you could have an interview in days.

The half-hour event happens weekly at 11:30 a.m. During that time, recruiters take calls, emails, and applications and line up prospective candidates with interviews.

To participate each week, look for the live video above or watch on our streaming apps.

Have your resume ready, or you can create a free profile on the state's jobs website, Work in Texas.

Jobs are available around the Houston area, including hundreds of summer-related positions at area waterparks, pools, and restaurants. There are also dozens of jobs specifically geared for veterans.

The pay ranges from $7.25 to $30 an hour. Some positions even pay $70,000 a year.

If you're looking for other career help, there's also an ABC13 viewer hotline, where you can call and speak with a recruiter for free. The number is 832-849-0480. The hotline is open during the event, but you can also call weekdays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

To preview the jobs, go to the Workforce Solutions website, and look for the "As seen on ABC13 section."

In addition to jobs, we also talked about childcare assistance that's available to help people return to work.
