SLATE Missouri Job Center is thrilled to announce the dates for its 3rd Annual Holly Jolly Holiday Hiring Fair series. This event series is designed to connect job seekers with businesses looking to hire new talent throughout the holiday season, offering both seasonal and permanent employment opportunities.
This year’s Holly Jolly Hiring Fair will take place in the first-floor conference rooms at 1520 Market Street on October 30; November 7, 15, 30; and December 8, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Participation is entirely free. Job seekers will have the chance to meet and interview with a wide range of companies representing entry-level, mid-career, and professional positions in high-demand industries such as healthcare, IT, manufacturing, transportation and logistics, hospitality, customer service, and more. Many employers will be conducting on-the-spot interviews and extending job offers to fill immediate openings. SLATE staff will also be on hand to provide information about the various employment and training opportunities available through the agency.
A growing list of businesses has already registered for the event, including MoDOT, Unleashing Potential, Pattonville School District, Charter Spectrum, SLPS, St. Louis City Sheriff's Department, FedEx, Complete Quality Care, Washington University, City Treasurer's Office, Procter & Gamble, AOS, BJC, Levy Restaurants, St. Louis Zoo, and Bailey Restaurants. More employers are expected to sign up as the event dates approach.
“For the past two years, we’ve had over 500 individuals enter our doors looking for work. Whether you’re looking to earn extra cash for the holiday season or you’re looking for permanent employment, the Holly Jolly Hiring Fair Series is the place to be. This is truly the most wonderful time of year for our SLATE staff because it’s when we connect the most individuals to employment opportunities,” said Fredrecka McGlown, SLATE Executive Director.
Convenient parking is available at the Kiel Center Garage, located just behind the building at the corner of Clark and 16th. We kindly request that all candidates attending the Job Fair bring their résumés and dress for success.
