Tempe Job Monsoon

Tag: BlogSpotlight

 

Downtown Tempe is in the eye of the storm as a different kind of monsoon hits the city this week. Downtown  Tempe Authority, in partnership with the City of Tempe, is hosting a first-of-its-kind Job Monsoon hiring event on July 21 and 28.

 

The fields of green balloons lining downtown Tempe streets will be proof positive that the time has never been riper with opportunities for job seekers looking to seize their next big break. Placed in front of more than 100 businesses throughout Tempe, the balloons will let job seekers know which companies are actively looking for employees to join their teams. The majority of companies will be taking resumes, offering application, conducting

interviews – and even offering jobs – on the spot.

                         

The creative take on a traditional job fair not only allows short-staffed companies to take care of their customers, but it gives job seekers a chance to see the company’s day-to-day business in action and get a sense of the work environment.

With its central location, easy access and vibrant character, Downtown Tempe is the heart of the Valley making it the ideal place to work and take in the unique experience that it offers.

 

“As Downtown Tempe gets ready to welcome students and visitors alike this fall and winter, it will be critical for our many merchants and businesses to fill open positions that are waiting for dynamic job seekers,” said Kate Borders, Executive Director, Downtown Tempe Authority. “The Tempe Job Monsoon will give job seekers an unprecedented opportunity to see employers in action and get a real taste for what it’s like to work at one of the many vibrant businesses downtown.”

 

The Job Monsoon’s timing comes at a critical time as the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation comes to an end and the State of Arizona’s Return-to-Work bonuses offer $2,000 to applicants who start a job by Labor Day and stay for 10 weeks. Additionally, the State of Arizona is now offering three months of child care assistance for job seekers with children who return to work after collecting unemployment benefits.
