Harlingen is Hiring! Workforce Wednesday Brings Job Seeker & Employers Together


HARLINGEN, TEXAS (JULY 25, 2021) – Get your resumes ready because Workforce Wednesday Job Fair launches Wednesday, Aug. 4. It will be the first of a series of job fairs hosted by the Harlingen EDC in partnership with Workforce Solutions Cameron. 

These “mini” job fairs will have up to six employers and will be industry-specific. The first event will have employers hiring for hundreds of positions in the government, skilled industrial trades, and manufacturing sectors. The event will be held at the Harlingen Convention Center, 701 Harlingen Heights Drive, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“As more people are getting back to work and employers are hiring, the goal of Workforce Wednesday is to bring those qualified job seekers together with employers ready to hire them,” Raudel Garza, HEDC CEO, said. 

“We encourage job seekers to come prepared with copies of their resume because there will be employers conducting same-day interviews.”  

A few of the job openings job seekers can expect include positions like transportation officers, mechanics, electricians, drivers, diesel mechanics, machine operators, and others. 

If you are an employer and would like to participate in the next job fair, call the Harlingen EDC at 956-216-5081 or Workforce Solutions Cameron at 956-368-5200, ext. 4328. The following event will be held in October with a focus on retail, hospitality, and commercial jobs.
