JobSparx was proud to sponsor the Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) and Between Jobs Ministry (BJM) hosting their 2019 Spring Career Fair on Tuesday, March 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Harrell Family Opportunity Center, which is located behind NAM’s main building. It was free of charge to the 400 job seekers who attended as well as over 50 recruiters and employers like Southwestern Energy, Houston Methodist Hospital, National Oilwell Varco, and Wells Fargo Bank.
Companies in attendance ranged from the City of Houston to Marriott Hotels and spanned a variety of industries such as oil and gas, education, law enforcement, finance, and medical. Job seekers were able to meet with Workforce Solutions, NAM THRIVE, and Lone Star College, as well as with representatives from non-profit and veteran organizations in the area. Participants also had the opportunity to attend a special Job Readiness Workshop led by Bill Proctor of NextStep Career Management.
“The quality and variety of job opportunities at this year’s career fair truly offered something for everyone regardless of their educational level, work history or area of interest,” said Mary Silbert, Director of NAM’s Learning Center. “This event provides an opportunity for individuals to explore open positions available in Houston and to learn more about how NAM and BJM can help them in their job search or career exploration.”
