Opportunity Fair | Nov 15, 2018



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 and take jobs. Employers are struggling to find skilled tradesmen like electricians, truck drivers, electricians and diesel mechanics. The entire economy could grow, if we had more people to do the work.

Ruby Radio is organizing the Opportunity Fair 2018 to bring employers and employees together. We expect 50-60 employers, several participants from the various state training and employment programs, and educational resources to join us. The biggest difference is that we are promoting this OUTSIDE of Elko as well, to attract new people to our community.
