Job Fair

Come find your next great career opportunity.

Join the State Fair and Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas for the Big Tex Job Fair which provides employment for the local community and the Fair’s seasonal workers while also offering unique job-seeking opportunities and workshops. Local companies will be taking applications and interviewing for employment positions across a broad range of skill sets.

The 2020 Big Tex Job Fair takes place in the fall, sooner than usual due to the cancellation of the State Fair of Texas. This year’s event will be held virtually. If you or a loved one seeking a job need access to the internet to participate in the Job Fair, please contact community@bigtex.com for more information.

Thursday, September 24, 2020 & Friday, September 25, 2020
9 A.M. to 4 P.M.
