Arizona@Work, the state’s workforce development initiative, will host its annual job fair at Harrah’s Ak-Chin on July 6. Nearly 50 employers will be on hand recruiting, including Maricopa Unified School District. They are looking to fill positions such as social workers, medical assistants, correctional officers, bartenders, youth advocates, claims specialists, sales representatives, law enforcement, heavy construction and food service.
“It’s a good variety of jobs,” said Linda Martinez, business service liaison for Arizona@Work in Pinal County.
Martinez said job seekers who plan to attend this year’s job fair should be “dressed for success,” so no shorts or flip-flops. Arizona@Work also offers help with résumés at its Business and Career Center in Casa Grande.
Last year’s job fair for Maricopa brought out 52 employers and about 300 job seekers. Martinez said at least 30 were hired as a result of the event.
