Allen’s largest employers will search for new talent at a job fair on Dec. 8, hosted by the Allen Economic Development Corporation (AEDC). Participating companies will include KONE Elevators, Experian, PFSweb, Allen ISD, Andrews Distributing, MonkeySports, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital and several others.
Located in one of the fastest-growing counties in the country, Allen has a robust economy that depends on a talented and educated workforce. Over 52% of Allen residents have a Bachelor’s degree or higher, which is twice the national average. Employment opportunities are expected to soar in coming years, with a 16.3% job growth rate projected by 2019. The projected national growth rate is just 5.9%.
“The AEDC saw the need to host a community-wide job fair to support Allen’s major employers,” says Dan Bowman, AEDC executive director and CEO. “With a strong local economy and rapid business growth, recruiting and retaining talented employees is crucial.”
The job fair will be held Tuesday, Dec. 8 at the Hilton Garden Inn (705 Central Expressway South) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring multiple copies of their resumes. Workforce Solutions of North Central Texas’ mobile unit will be on-site to assist with resume updates and online job applications.
