Several Express Employment Professionals offices in the area are planning to host a 12-hour job-a-thon event later in August to fill 1,500 immediate job openings.
The phone interview is scheduled for August 24 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., according to a statement. The event allows job seekers to call their local Express offices anytime from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and immediately speak with a recruiter about their skills and interests, the release said. Instead of requiring job seekers to physically visit offices to apply for positions, job seekers can call Express at their convenience during the 12 hour event to explore local employment opportunities, adds the press release.
Seven Express Employment agencies from the region are participating in the event. Positions available include office services, industrial, skilled and professional trades. The positions are primarily evaluation hires or direct hires. There is no cost to the applicant for an interview.
“Our goal for Job-a-Thon is to connect with as many people as possible over the phone, and we’re going to do an initial 15-minute phone interview, go over people’s work history, learn what they research and then talk about the many opportunities in a variety of industries, ”said Diane Frazer, local Express franchisee, in the release. “After that, we’ll explain to them what the next steps are from there. As students return to class and businesses hire, we’re ready to get our community back to work and connect people with local businesses. “
