Job fair in Irving

IRVING — If you're looking for work, you're in luck.

Kelly Services, a staffing agency, is looking to fill 1,500 positions across DFW for companies like Amazon, Target, GENCO, Best Buy, and Fed Ex.

The agency is hosting a job fair at its offices in Irving, located at 7301 State Highway 161 Suite 170, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. October 4 and 5.

There are 1,000 full time openings, and 500 part time openings, mostly for warehouse work, said Deanne Coleman, Kelly Services vice president.

Applicants can get offers on the spot, said Coleman, because the job fair is set up to complete the entire process.
"If folks want to work, there are jobs out there available for them," said John Romanow, territory vice president for Kelly Services. "We can get you a job."

Hundreds of people are expected to attend the job fair, which is a glimmer of hope for those like Jesuitt Lewis.
He was the first to arrive at the job fair; he's been looking for work for two months.

"You can't get a job sitting on the couch, you have to get up and make it happen," Lewis said. "They always say the earliest bird gets the worm."
