2015 Job Fairs

The Panhandle Job Fair began in the spring of 1993 to primarily assist military service members seeking employment opportunities after completing their military careers. It was later expanded to include military spouses and the general public. The Panhandle Job Fair attracts companies nationwide who are seeking well-qualified, educated, and experienced individuals for employment opportunities worldwide.

The continued success and growth of the Panhandle Job Fair is based on finding high-quality companies and well qualified job seekers, while keeping costs at a minimum. It attracts over 100 companies and averages 1,000 jobseekers at each fair. It boasts to be the best job fair in the Panhandle area!
