The 2022 Greater Hazleton Job Fair is set for Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Laurel Mall, Route 93.
The event, sponsored by the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce, will provide participating businesses with an informal, yet confidential forum to discuss career opportunities and options with hundreds of individuals from throughout the Hazleton area.
Participating employers will offer information about career fields and employment opportunities, conduct interviews, promote their business, collect resumes and seek interns, summer employment or full- and part-time positions.
Individuals seeking full-time or part-time employment, career advancements or internship opportunities are encouraged to attend. Attendance is free.
This job fair has been averaging 300 to 500 job seekers in recent years.
A pamphlet is distributed the day of the job fair to every attendee listing participating businesses and what positions they are hiring for. However, the chamber encourages those attending to visit every employer because additional job opportunities typically become available after the pamphlet is printed.
