Virtual law enforcement job fair offered Jan. 14

by Staff reports

A virtual law enforcement job fair for those interested in a law enforcement career will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, Thursday, Jan. 14.

The event is one of two hosted this month by Workforce Solutions East Texas.

“With traditional job fairs restricted due to COVID-19, WSET helps connect workers with employment opportunities in a virtual setting that protects the health and safety of attendees,” according to a release.

“Workforce Solutions East Texas is proud of and honored to support our law enforcement, first responders, and healthcare partners,” said WSET Executive Director Doug Shryock.

“A significant portion of our support is by helping the next generation prepare to take their place in the defense of our community. Join us to explore your latest opportunities to step forward, even as we combat this national pandemic. COVID hasn't stopped the need for heroes in many uniforms in their efforts to reclaim our communities,” he added. “Whether in the ER, the squad car, or riding an engine, our partners are putting in long shifts. They need you to step up and step in. Our virtual hiring events are one more way, together, we're improvising, adapting, and overcoming.”

A healthcare job fair will be held from 9 a.m. until noon, Thursday, Jan. 28.

Easy-to-use software will be available to interested participants, allowing “one-on-one text-based chats from the comfort of their home, office, smartphone or tablet.”
