TAMPA (March 4, 2014)--On February 26th the Tampa Housing Authority sponsored a job fair for the residents of the agency as well as those within the local community. It was a joint venture between THAs Program and Property Services Department and the Center For Manifestation Worldwide Inc. Companies like Wal-Mart, Terminix, Chase, Tampa Bay Times Forum and Leary Technical were just a few to present employment opportunities to active job seekers. For more information regarding upcoming job fairs or vendor opportunities, please contact Chris Ward @813-341-9101 ext. 2074.
In the Tampa Bay area alone unemployment is down 6.2 percent since December; the lowest in the entire state within the past 5 ½ months. Most of the vendors present advertised available positions in the fields of administrative, clerical, warehouse and call center/customer service. As a result of the housing authority’s outreach efforts other businesses such as PDQ sponsored lunch for all participating employment vendors, Toufaxan Bakery provided breakfast breads/ muffins and the Center for Manifestation Worldwide, Inc. provided all of the beverages.
“This is not the first job fair that we’ve hosted here at the Authority,” says Jerome D. Ryans, President and CEO. “We have a very active job developer who is always on the alert for available employment opportunities for Tampa Housing Authority residents. My hope is that all of our residents and even those who are not residents of the Housing Authority, will participate in upcoming job fairs to be scheduled throughout the year.”
The Housing Authority of the City of Tampa promotes the development and professional management of a variety of affordable housing opportunities, facilities and supportive services to nurture neighborhoods, provide economic development and self-sufficiency activates for residents, assuring equal access to safe, quality housing for low and moderate income families throughout the community.
