ABC13 and Workforce Solutions hosts virtual job fair featuring 1,500 jobs

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- As summer approaches, a number of employers are looking to hire.

To help you find a gig, ABC13 partnered with Workforce Solutions for a virtual job fair with hundreds of positions.

If you missed the live half-hour event, you can re-watch it on our website and mobile app in the video player above and our streaming apps.

Each week, Workforce Solutions recruiters take resumes and answer calls. To participate when we're live, have a resume ready, or set up a profile on the state's jobs website.

This week, there are about 1,500 jobs. Some of those pay $70,000 a year, and others pay $20 an hour.

There are a variety of positions in fields including construction, law enforcement, lifeguarding, insurance, and retail. If you need assistance with your resume, interviews, or career advice, we have an ABC13 viewer hotline during the job fair, where you can call and talk to a recruiter for free. The number is 832-849-0480.

Since this fall, more than 130 people have found a job through ABC13's weekly virtual job fair. With the economy reopening, more people being vaccinated, and summer approaching, experts said now is the time to land a new job.

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