Commisioner Sandy Murman’s County Job Fair

Hillsborough County Commissioner SandyMurman, in association with CareerSource Tampa Bay and Hillsborough Community College, will be hosting a County Job Fair on Friday, October 7 from 8:30 a.m. – 12 Noon at the HCC Dale Mabry Campus, 4001 W. Tampa Bay Blvd., in Tampa. Employers are encouraged to participate.

Visit www.sandymurman.com for employer/vendor information.
More than 50 employers and vendors participated last year, some of whom interviewed potential employees on the spot, while others provided online links to jobs. In addition, larger companies such as Amazon, Coca-Cola and Hillsborough County Public Schools were present at the event to offer employment opportunities.

In a survey taken by CareerSource Tampa Bay, which asked for feedback on the event, 90 percent of the employers and vendors who completed the survey rated spending money at local businesses, and the economy continues to improve,” said Commissioner Murman. “It’s still critical that we get people back to work,” Murman added.

The 2016 County Job Fair is free and open to the public. For more information call Astrid Mosterd at CareerSource Tampa Bay at 397-2090 or email Astrid at mosterda@careersourcetampabay.com.
