The Job Fair connects job seekers and businesses throughout the Central Valley.

More than 90 employers from multiple industries including healthcare, manufacturing, distribution, retail, hospitality, and food services are scheduled to attend, representing more than 2,000 job opportunities. In addition to meeting with employers, job seekers will have the opportunity to network with local job placement organizations and educational institutions and learn about job training options. Attendees are encouraged to wear professional attire and bring multiple copies of their resume.
“Events like the Tulare County Job Fair, which connect the valley’s talented workers with employers looking to hire, are a critical part of our efforts to strengthen our local economy,” stated Adam Peck, Executive Director, Workforce Investment Board of Tulare County. “As local businesses and workers recover from the devastating impacts of the pandemic, the job fair will help us build a stronger, more prosperous Tulare County,” Peck added.
