SAN ANTONIO – The Brooks Virtual Job Fair is set to take place on Wednesday morning. The event is a collaboration with Workforce Solutions Alamo, Goodwill SA, and SA Works.

As of now, there are 59 registered business and 537 registered job seekers. Organizers behind the event hope to get everyone in San Antonio back to work.

Job seekers will have the chance to meet with employers, view job descriptions, and submit their resumes.

Several Goodwill Career Centers locations have offered one-on-one coaching prior to the job fair.

Five Workforce Solutions Alamo locations will also serve as a hub for attendees to access computers and WiFi.

Each center follows CDC guidelines. Stations are also social distanced and sanitized after each use.

CEO of Workforce Solutions Alamo, Adrian Lopez, told KSAT roughly 350,000 jobs were lost in the pandemic. However, he believes there is light at the end of the tunnel.

“We want to encourage people to take advantage of opportunities like this so they can have options and they can figure what is their next step in their career move,” Lopez said.

The job fair will take place beginning at 9 a.m. For more information click here.
