With businesses of all sizes in North Texas facing a workforce shortage, Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne has taken the initiative to host the 2023 North Texas Job Fair. The event, set to take place on August 7th at the Irving Convention Center, will see more than 350 companies offering over 15,000 job openings in various industries and at all levels of employment.
Supported by a range of elected officials, including House Committee on Appropriations Chairwoman Kay Granger, House Committee on Small Business Chairman Roger Williams, Congressman Pat Fallon, and Congressman Marc Veasey, the job fair aims to connect job seekers with employers in need of filling critical vacancies. Local leaders have also pledged their support to ensure the success of the event.
Job seekers attending the event can expect a diverse range of opportunities, spanning from entry-level positions to executive roles. Companies from various sectors, including technology, healthcare, finance, and more, will be present, offering potential employees a wide array of options.
Additionally, in response to the economic challenges posed by inflation, Congresswoman Van Duyne has organized "Back to School with Beth" - an initiative where North Texas families impacted by rising costs can receive support. The program will provide free backpacks, school supplies, and books from the Library of Congress to ease the financial burden on families as the new school year approaches.
Moreover, the event will feature a constituent services section with the participation of 17 different organizations. Among them, 10 different veteran organizations will be present, along with VA healthcare enrollment and PACT Act experts, providing vital resources and support to North Texans in need.
