The 7th Annual Conroe Job Fair presented by the Conroe Economic Development Council (Conroe EDC) and the Conroe/Lake Conroe Chamber of Commerce will be held Tuesday, January 29 from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at the Lone Star Convention Center in Conroe.

Job seekers will be able to browse careers in education, manufacturing, sales, finance, fitness, law enforcement, and real estate, among others. The Conroe EDC expects about 50 companies and organizations from around the region to participate, looking to fill a variety of roles.

“Conroe continues to grow and the job market remains strong,” said Jennifer Matthews, Associated Director of the Conroe EDC. “With a variety of industries expected to be represented, there will be job prospects available to a wide-range of job seekers. We hope to show that Conroe is a great place to work, where opportunities abound.”

Workforce Solutions will host workshops leading up to the job fair to prepare job seekers. Workshops in resume writing, business etiquette, and interview skills will be offered on January 15 and 22 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and January 16 and 23 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at the Chamber offices. Mock interviews will also be offered to those attending the workshops.

Job seekers can also apply onsite to win a scholarship from Lone Star College. The scholarships can be used to learn additional skills or to enhance current skills needed to find a job.
