HOUSTON, TX – Congressman Gene Green held his annual Northside Job Fair Monday morning, which hosted over 40 employers and more than 400 job candidates at the M.O. Campbell Educational Center arena. Many participants made connections with employers and began the interview process, others were offered jobs immediately.
“We had a great turnout of participants, and a very successful job fair,” Green said. “This event offers constituents an opportunity to interact with various companies in a wide variety of professions. We not only want to help people find employment, we want to help them move into higher-paying jobs so that they can get ahead and support their families.”
Over 40 companies and organizations participated in the event from both the public and private sector, and a variety of industries. Full-time, part-time and seasonal positions were advertised for an array of skill sets ranging from first-responders to engineers to educators.
