Workforce Solutions says more than 130 employers are ready to recruit for over 5,000 positions in many industries, including education, law enforcement and government.

Some employers will be conducting on-site interviews. 

"So you want to make sure you arrive dressed for success and with a couple of resumes in hand," said Workforce Solutions Communications Specialist Miguel Gonzalez. "We will also have computers and printers in both locations."

Those hoping to find a new job during Thursday’s RGV Regional Job Fair will also have a chance to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Hidalgo County will be hosting a vaccine clinic during the job fair, set for Thursday, Aug. 19 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
