Job Fair

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and the Central Arkansas Human Resources Association present the 2019 Spring and Fall Job Fairs at the Statehouse Convention Center on April 16th, 2019, and October 8th, 2019, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

The fair brings job seekers and recruiters together in one location on one day. This Job Fair is here to help ease this burden on both the seeker and the recruiter.

Those looking for a job should come prepared and should bring at least 50 copies of their resume, dress professionally and be well groomed. First impressions do count when looking for a job!

CAHRA volunteers are what make the job fair a success!
