It's being held from 10AM to 4PM at Verizon Arena in North Little Rock.
This is the third year for the event, which is sponsored by the Arkansas Department of Workforce Services and Arkansas Workforce Centers. This year more than 130 exhibitors, including employers and education and training providers, are registered to attend, with around 8,500 jobs available.
"The career expo this year is shaping up to be bigger and better than in past years," said Arkansas Department of Workforce Services Director Artee Williams. "We have partnered with an impressive group of employers and education and training providers who bring active job openings and education and training opportunities to the event."
New this year, the expo will include a Veterans Center to assist veterans with their employment needs. Many veterans are returning from deployment and transitioning back into the civilian workforce. Exhibitors in the Veterans Center will provide employment information and assistance to veterans who are either looking for jobs or seeking to upgrade their skills.
The event also will feature a mini-Arkansas Workforce Center, with several computers for resume preparation and job searches. Attendees are encouraged to bring their resumes to the event. Workforce Center staff will be available to review resumes and provide feedback.
Workshops will be held throughout the day covering such topics as resume preparation, interviewing tips and job search techniques.
