“Turnaround Houston has led to opportunities for countless individuals who need a second chance,” said Mayor Turner. “They have built strong collaborative partnerships with some of our city’s finest businesses and organizations. Industries include construction, technology, telecommunications and many more. Jobs give people a sense of pride, allowing them to care for their families and meet personal goals. I encourage all job seekers, regardless of employment or criminal history, to attend this free event and take advantage of the exciting career possibilities that await.”
The hiring event will take place at the Alief Community Center Gymnasium at 11903 Bellaire Boulevard Houston, TX 77072, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. More than 30 employers and resource organizations will be present at Turnaround Houston, and job seekers will also have the opportunity to participate in on-the-spot interviews with hiring managers.
“Jobs and workforce development have always been my priority,” said Councilmember Thomas. “I am excited to work with the Office of Business Opportunity and assist Houstonians in making positive changes toward their economic future.”
More than 1,600 full and part-time positions ranging from entry-level to experienced upper management will be available in industries such as health, finance, and hospitality.
