Aug. 24 Community Job And Resource Fair In WPB

Better Together and The Light WPB are partnering to host a community job fair for West Palm Beach-area residents from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 24.

Registration is now open for hiring employers and job seekers to participate in the August event. The church-based job fair not only connects job seekers with local employers who are ready to hire, but also provides resources to facilitate stronger connections and more hires.

Free one-on-one job coaching sessions are also available to job seekers to review résumés and interviewing skills, and other additional services will be available onsite.

The community job fair is part of Better Together’s “Better Jobs” program, which has helped 39,000 applicants connect with employment opportunities across 22 states.

At job fairs hosted by Better Together, two-thirds of attendees get a job interview, and one in four receive a job offer on the spot.

The Aug. 24 job fair will take place at Forest Hill High School, located at 6901 Parker Ave. in West Palm Beach. Job seekers and employers can register at or by texting “JOBS” to (844) 987-3949.
