Virtual Job Fair in Dallas Featuring 40 Companies June 3rd & 4th

In a recent eight-week period, nearly 2 million Texans filed for unemployment. More of those workers will be returning as more types of businesses are allowed to open, and as some types of businesses are allowed to expand their capacity from 25% to 50%.

Even as some employees return, many others are looking for work. You might be familiar with the unemployment office called the Texas Workforce Commission. Another branch called Texas Workforce Solutions, aims to assist people in getting jobs.

Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas (WSGD) has been holding virtual job fairs, where people can go to the website, enter a virtual lobby, and stop by virtual booths to meet real employers actively looking for workers.  June 3 and 4 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., they are planning a huge job fair with the City of Dallas, where they hope to feature as many as 40 employers who are hiring.

Job seekers can pre-register as early as Wednesday, May 20 online. That site will not be active until Wednesday. Once the site is live, job seekers can set up a log in, build a profile and upload their resumes prior to the event — and are highly encouraged to do so.

For those who need some resume assistance, the office has resume help and other online workshops available here. And there is a wealth of resume writing advice here and here.

Thanks WFAA!

Guests should only crack their windows to receive the pencil and paper forms and fill it out prior to getting to the front of the line.

Please note if you are picking up for another family or elderly person, please bring their ID or a utility bill.
  • Intake Form Photo – When vehicles reach the distribution point, NTFB/Texas National Guard will take a photo of the intake form through the vehicle’s windows. Windows should remain closed to comply with social distancing requirements.
  • Box Allocation Determination – Based on the household size, NTFB will determine how many boxes of food the vehicle should receive
  • Food Distribution – Boxed food is placed in the trunk of the vehicle. If the trunk does not open, NTFB/Texas National Guard will place the food on hood, roof, or trunk of the car and ask the guest to drive forward and transfer the boxes to their trunk.

The Dallas County shelter-in-place order allows residents to leave their homes to obtain food. All shelter-in-place guidelines are being followed. Safety precautions have been established to limit any physical interaction with the NTFB/Texas National Guard.

Here’s one way you can show your support for the people on the front line in the fight against coronavirus. WFAA is encouraging all North Texans to visibly express their solidarity with local health care workers. These are our neighbors, family members, and friends who are fighting on the front lines of the coronavirus.

To show your support, join the community in tying a white ribbon in front of your home or residence. Keep it visible for the duration of this crisis.

Remember, while we’re inside, health care workers are out there, making sure the American way of life can resume as quickly as possible. Let them know how much they are appreciated in a visually impactful and historically symbolic way.

You can purchase your ribbon HERE. Or, you can even use a white towel, sheet, Christmas lights, or torn up white t-shirt.

Thank you for taking the time to show our Health Care Heroes we’re all in this together… just not, “together”. #WhiteRibbonRally
