Over 300 businesses are at the Irving Convention Center in Las Colinas looking to fill over 10,000 job positions.

Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne said she wanted to host this job fair after speaking with many businesses in the area who have said it’s been hard to hire employees and get back to normal.

“This pandemic has definitely taken a toll on all of us,” said Van Duyne. “But right now we have demand to open the economy back up. We have businesses here who are wanting to get back together,” she said.

She said what started out as an idea to have a few businesses at a library turned into a mega event.

“This was a wonderful community effort to bring all of these businesses here together. Now is not the time for party politics, now is the time to open up our economy, help struggling families get back in the game and get back to work,” she said.

The event was a huge success, the convention center was packed with job seekers and employers looking to hire.
