Opportunity Fair is Open for Employers

MAY 16, 2019 @ 2PM - 6PM



Jobs in every field are open in Elko, NV. Come to Opportunity Fair to find them.Elko, NV has a really great problem! We have too much work for the people who live here. We need more people to come to Elko for these good jobs. Employers need skilled teammates like truck drivers, electricians, welders, service technicians, diesel mechanics and law enforcement. There's lots of need in healthcare, culinary and hospitality, too! 

The entire economy could grow, if we had more people to do the work. Women are encouraged to attend. Ask about training programs, benefits, healthcare, consistent hours, and bonus.

Ruby Radio is organizing Opportunity Fair 2019 on May 16 2-6pm, at Elko Conference Center to bring 50-65 employers together with employees. Our plan is to also promote this OUTSIDE of Elko as well, to attract new people to our community.

Come see Elko - a small, safe community where you can afford to have a real house, give your kids access to good schools in a healthy, clean, outdoorsy environment. Re-locators are welcome to explore Elko. #tradeuptonevada
