DALLAS – The City of Dallas is hosting a job fair highlighting businesses with open overnight positions.
“The City of Dallas is excited to partner with great organizations to meet workforce needs of residents and employers,” said Small Business Center Director Joyce Williams. “This Nightwork Expo provides a flexible approach to meet the needs of those who must work at night because of family obligations or educational requirements and for employers who are looking to fill nighttime positions.”
The Nightwork Expo will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, March 7 at Gilley’s, which is located at 1135 Botham Jean Blvd. Partnering with the Small Business Center is 24HourDallas and Workforce Solutions of Greater Dallas.
“A Nightwork Expo is a unique and fresh approach to re-engaging the workforce and we were inspired by the energetic volunteers of 24HourDallas,” said Workforce Solutions of Greater Dallas President Laurie Bouillion Larrea. “We are very proud to participate in this inaugural job fair and hopefully provide a unique in-person and virtual setting for the employers and the many job seekers who are still trying to find their new careers.”
About 40 businesses will be showcased throughout the Nightwork Expo.
“Helping nighttime businesses, from healthcare to hospitality, that are dealing with labor shortage issues is a goal in our economy development team’s pandemic recovery initiative at 24HourDallas,” said Tony Stewart, Economic Development chair of 24HourDallas. “So we loved that the city of Dallas reached out to us to plan a job fair for nighttime jobs. The Nightwork Expo will bring together talented job seekers and businesses from all sectors.”
