PUNTA GORDA — As of July, over 1,900 jobs have been created in Charlotte County in the past year.
Around 50 employers are hoping to fill hundreds of those positions at next week’s fourth annual Job & Education Fair. The job fair will be held at the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center in Punta Gorda next Thursday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
“It is our goal and a (Society for Human Resource Management) initiative, to create better workplaces for a better world,” said Charlotte County’s chapter president Kim Dabilis Byrne.
The first 100 registered attendees are eligible to receive a free resume review and career coaching.
There will also be representatives from various colleges available to talk about training and education programs. Job
