DALLAS – Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins is hosting DFW’s second annual You’re Hired Job Fest this week.

Jenkins and Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas are hoping to fill more than 5,000 jobs. Reps will be on site for companies including UPS, Amazon, Walmart, and Fed-Ex.
“Have you ever been to a job fair that feels like a blind date – you get all dressed up, only to feel awkward and rejected?” Jenkins asked in a statement for the fair. “Well, this is a Job Hook-up! These employers are highly motivated and they have great jobs available in logistics. So, if you need a job, or know someone who does, next Thursday, come see Clay.”
Applicants must sign up for the event — register here.
The companies are offering competitive wages, some with the possibility of tuition reimbursement. Immediate needs are in areas including logistics, warehouse, transportation, shipping & receiving, and more.
