Dallas Job Fair Thursday Will Be County's Biggest Ever

Texas Workforce Commission to also offer job fairs Thursday at Globe-Life Park in Arlington and the Allen Event Center

The largest job fair ever in Dallas County on Thursday will feature 180 companies offering jobs to as many as 10,000 people.

It'll take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Gilley's on Lamar Street south of downtown.

"Whether you're looking for a blue-collar job, a white-collar job, a full-time job, a part-time job, a seasonal job, we've got a job for you," said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, who is helping organize the event.

He said the focus will be on jobs that pay a competitive salary.

Ivory Peace, a single mother of three in Dallas, said she plans to attend. She lost her job as a hospital housekeeper about six weeks ago.

"I'm learning to be patient," she said. "When you be patient, better things happen for you."

Peace said she would like to be a bailiff but will take about any job to support her children.

The last job fair two weeks ago was the biggest in Dallas County before this one. It helped 4,000 people find jobs.

The Texas Workforce Commission will offer two other job fairs on Thursday – at Globe-Life Park in Arlington from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and at the Allen Event Center from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
