Better Together, New Springs Church to host June 20 community job and resource fair

Better Together and New Springs Church are partnering to host a community job fair for Coral Springs-area residents from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, June 20.

Registration is now open for hiring employers and job seekers to participate in the June 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 available to job seekers to review resumes and interviewing skills, and 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 and the District of Columbia. At job fairs hosted by Better Together, two-thirds of attendees get a job interview, and 1 in 4 receive a job offer on the spot. Some 70% find work within six weeks.

“The community is stepping up to create opportunities and restore hope for those in need of employment,” said Megan Rose, CEO of Better Together. “This is not your typical job fair. Job seekers can come as they are, no suits required. Encouraging volunteers can help with resumes. We know the challenges that many face when they are seeking employment and are ready with solutions.”

The June 20 job fair will take place at New Springs Church, located at 11464 W. Sample Road in Coral Springs.
