D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the D.C. Department of Human Resources announced that a Winter Hiring Event will take place on Feb. 13 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in Northwest.
Throughout the day, residents will be able to explore nearly 600 career opportunities and some participating agencies will make on-the-spot job offers.
“In-person hiring fairs are one more way we connect D.C. residents to fantastic opportunities in D.C. government,” Bowser said. “We know that we have great candidates in all eight wards, and these fairs help us reach the right people for the job. We have competitive pay and great benefits, and it’s an exciting time to be in local government.”
During the hiring event, residents will be able to connect with professional development opportunities and community resources, including resume and interview workshops, live professional coaching on engaging employers, translating transferable skills to meet position requirements, and help with navigating job fairs.
On-site registration will also be available on the day of the event.
