Hillsborough County Commissioner Sandy Murman's annual County Job Fair on Friday features dozens of employers looking to fill openings.

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

The job fair had originally been scheduled for October 7 but was postponed due to the threat posed by Hurricane Matthew.

The fair is being held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Student Services Building at Hillsborough Community College's Dale Mabry Campus located at 4001 W. Tampa Blvd. in Tampa.

More than 50 employers are expected to participate in the job fair. Some will interview potential employees on the spot, while others will provide online links to jobs.

The participating employers have hundreds of positions available in both part time and full time work.

“We are very excited this year to have employers like BayCare, LabCorp, General Dynamics IT, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Nielsen, Hillsborough County Public Schools and many more," said Commissioner Murman.

You can find a complete list of employers participating at Job fair is free and open to the public.

If you cannot attend the job fair in person, you can still participate in the Virtual County Job Fair on Friday afternoon.

From 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. job seekers can access to apply for any jobs that were featured at the morning event.
