Better Together is hosting a pop-up community job fair for Southwest Florida residents from 2 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 3 in Fort Myers.
The church-based job fair will connect job seekers with local employers who are ready to hire immediately. The community job fair is part of Better Together’s “Better Jobs” program, which has helped 32,000 applicants connect with employment opportunities across 20 states. At job fairs hosted by Better Together, two-thirds of attendees get a job interview, and one out of four receive a job offer on the spot.
“In times of economic hardship, we want to empower our neighbors in need by supplying the necessary resources they need to succeed,” said Megan Rose, CEO of Better Together. “Our team is dedicated to connecting people with opportunities to provide a loving, safe and supportive foundation for their families.”
The March 3 job fair will be held at Christ Community Church, located at 4050 Colonial Blvd. in Fort Myers. Space is limited. Participating employers include Advance Auto Parts, Jimmy John’s, JW Marriott, Managed Labor Solutions and Timberline Construction Group.
