Tarrant County felony/misdemeanor job fair back for third year
Last summer, despite a drop in the number of interested employers in the middle of the recession, organizers pulled off
The Mid-Cities Human Resource Association, Tarrant County Re-Entry Initiative, jobing.com, and criminalbackgroundjobhelp.com are the co-sponsors. As is tradition, the sponsors aren’t identifying the location publicly, and will only identify it late in the game to jobseekers they’ve screened and approved to attend the fair.
Interested jobseekers must register at http://mysecondchance.us/, beginning April 1. Deadline to register is July 15. Registration for employers, volunteers, sponsors, and other community exhibitors is open now. Employers that attend the fairs have agreed in advance to consider jobseekers who have misdemeanors in their backgrounds, or felonies, or both.
