More than 40 employers and vendors participated last year, some of whom interviewed potential employees on the spot, while others provided online links to jobs. Those attending included major government entities such as Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, County Fire Rescue and Hillsborough County Public Schools and private industry, including Mosaic, Lowe’s and Home Depot to name a few. In addition, the Florida Home Partnership and the Hillsborough County Division of Elections (Voter Registration) were present at the event to highlight their community programs.

In a survey taken by CareerSource Tampa Bay, which asked for feedback on the event, 85 percent of the employers and vendors who completed the survey rated the South County Job Fair as excellent or outstanding.

“With the challenges that we have been facing in the past few years, the most important thing that we can do in County Government is to help our unemployed or under employed citizens to find jobs. When more people are working, more people are saving and spending money at local businesses, and the economy continues to improve,” said Murman. “It’s still critical that we get people back to work,” Murman added.

The 2014 South County Job Fair is free and open to the public. For more information, call David Robinson at CareerSource Tampa Bay at 930-7868 or e-mail him at robinsond@
