Employers and recruiters for major companies like Amazon, MGM Resorts International, Fremont Street Experience, Sunshine Minting Inc. will be at the Sahara West Library from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 17, according to a news release. Attendance and parking are free.

Many employers are expected to offer sign-on bonuses, interview candidates on-site as well as possibly hire that day. Each company is also expected to offer at least five positions paying at least $15 per hour including base wage, tips and other incentives, according to the release.

The Fall Job Fair is presented by the EmployNV Business Hub, Las Vegas-Clark County Library District and Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones.

“The Fall Job Fair creates an easy way for job seekers to connect with career opportunities in a single, convenient location,” Jones said in the release. “We know helping employers fill open positions with quality candidates is vital to keeping our local economy strong.”

Career coaches from EmployNV will be at the fair to help with resumes and provide information on no-cost training opportunities. Job seekers will also have access to free computers and printers for day-of resume “touch-ups.”
