Over 1,000 job seekers attended the WNC Career Expo on October 29 at the US Cellular Center in downtown Asheville. More than 150 employers, educational institutions and workforce partners participated in this event which is the largest recruiting event in Western North Carolina. Participating employers were offering more than 8,000 career opportunities.
This career fair is a partnership between the Asheville Chamber of Commerce and Mountain Area Workforce Development Board.
The location and date were changed for the fall 2019 WNC Career Expo due to public health concerns at the previous site.
