Workforce Solutions Upper Rio Grande will be hosting its Job-A-Thon this Wednesday, April 2nd, from 10 am to 7 pm. This unique one-day job matching event connects jobseekers with employers by phone.

There will be over a thousand jobs dedicated to the event  and over 20 employers onsite including Dish Network, HP – Hewlett Packard, McDonald’s Corporation, Sun Metro Lift and Verizon Wireless to name a few. Jobs consist of various industries including Information Technology, Healthcare and Retail and Sales. Twenty Employment Advisors are dedicated to answer jobseeker calls.

“Job-A-Thon is a unique event because of the partnership and commitment from employers to be onsite talking with job seekers directly,” said Lorenzo Reyes, Jr., CEO for Workforce Solutions Upper Rio Grande. “In our latest Labor Market Review for February, the El Paso County has an 8.1% unemployment rate which is higher than the state average at 5.9% and 7.0 nationally. Job-A-Thon is one of the many initiatives we offer as a solution to help decrease this percentage,” Reyes reported.
The last Job-A-Thon was held on July 24th, 2013 Workforce Solutions  answered 1,265 calls and provided approximately 3,795 quality job referrals in a nine hour span.

Media is welcomed to visit the event. There will be dedicated space for networks to broadcast from and interview employers. To reserve a space, please contact Joseph Sapien at 915.240.5571 or email at joseph.sapien@urgjobs.org
