Hillsborough County Commissioner Sandy Murman is hosting her seventh job fair at Hillsborough Community College’s SouthShore Campus on August 9 from 8:30 a.m.-12 Noon.

Employers from all over the Tampa Bay area are heading to SouthShore next month to connect with residents looking for jobs. For the seventh year running, Hillsborough County Commissioner Sandy Murman is hosting the South County Job Fair in association with CareerSource Tampa Bay and Hillsborough Community College (HCC).

The fair, which is taking place on Thursday, August 9 from 8:30 a.m.-12 Noon at the HCC SouthShore Campus, is expected to draw approximately 50 employers and around 500 people.

“With the challenges that we have been facing in the past few years, the most important thing we can do in County Government is to help our unemployed or under employed citizens to find jobs,” said Murman.

The free event was attended by companies including Greenway Health, Bay Care Health System, Convergys, Moasic, TMobile and Tampa General Hospital last year. Hillsborough County Schools and Busch Gardens were also in attendance along with many other business representatives.

“Some businesses may interview potential candidates on the spot, while others may provide online links to jobs,” said Jeffrey Huggins, Legislative Aide to Murman.

Employers in the fields of Information Technology (IT) and Medical occupations are encouraged to participate. All employers with job openings are welcome to register before August 3. Space is limited.

According to Huggins, in surveys taken by CareerSource Tampa Bay following her recent job fairs, 90 percent of the employers and vendors who completed the survey rated Commissioner Murman’s Job Fair as excellent or outstanding.

“When more people are working, more people are saving and spending money at local businesses and the economy continues to improve,” said Murman. “It is critical that we get people back to work in South Hillsborough County.”

The event is free and open to the public. HCC SouthShore is located at 551 24th St. N.E. in Ruskin.
