The Idaho Department of Labor’s Post Falls office will host its biggest job fair of the year Wednesday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. More than 50 employers are slated to attend the event, taking place at Real Life Ministries, 1866 N. Cecil Road in Post Falls.
Employers from northern Idaho and Spokane are recruiting for more than 700 openings. Positions with major employers and local businesses offer opportunities such as supervisors, caregivers, technicians, health care professionals, sales personnel, drivers, CDL instructor, manufacturing workers, operations manager and more.
Historically low unemployment continues to boost wages and the number of openings available.
While attending the job fair, job seekers can learn about training opportunities available through Idaho LAUNCH. The statewide program can provide Idaho residents with substantial tuition assistance — 75% – 90% — for approved training in high-demand jobs including CDL drivers, certified nursing assistants, licensed electricians, dental assistants, welders and medical assistants.
For a list of employers scheduled to attend and jobs available, see the Idaho Department of Labor calendar at labor.idaho.gov/dnn/calendar. For more information about Idaho Launch, visit IdahoLaunch.com.
The event is free to attend. Job applicants are encouraged to bring a resume, dress to meet potential employers and be prepared to speak directly with company recruiters and HR personnel.
