Nearly 40 employers plan to attend the Metro Job Fair at PHSC Porter Campus on Monday, Jan. 30 in response to Pasco County’s growth
Wesley Chapel, Fla. (January 25, 2017) – As the Connected City area of Pasco County starts to take shape, Metro Development Group is hosting the Metro Job Fair to help connect local employers with the growing workforce.
Nearly 40 companies will be in attendance at the Metro Job Fair, including Florida Hospital, PCL Construction, Saint Leo University, AmeriLife, BrightView, Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative and the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office. Employers will be looking to fill over 400 entry- and mid-level jobs in such fields as healthcare, retail, food services, law enforcement, administrative, teaching and construction.
Metro Development Group is a key developer and visionary behind the Connected City, which will include two of the newest Metro Places communities, Epperson and Mirada. Each of these communities will feature a multi-acre Crystal Lagoons amenity, the first slated for completion in late 2017.
Aside from the many new homes and two lagoons, the area will boast the fastest internet and Wi-Fi speeds in the nation as the country’s first Smart Gigabit Community built from the ground up. This technology sets the framework for advanced healthcare, transportation, education and more in one forward-thinking location. This infrastructure and these advancements will lead to market growth and job creation, which is what prompted Metro Development Group to create this type of event in collaboration with other local businesses in Pasco County.
“Now that we have started construction at Epperson, our first project in the Connected City, we have heard from many of our vendors, collaborators and contractors that they have new positions to fill,” said Kartik Goyani, Vice President of Operations with Metro Development Group and the visionary behind the Connected City “We have also heard from many interested people about employment in this new venture and so we are excited to bring these groups together in an effort to kick-start the job growth that this project will create.”
Along with Metro Development Group, participating sponsors include: Pasco-Hernando State College, The Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce and CareerSource Pasco-Hernando.
CareerSource will have its Mobile Unit available on site, which is a self-contained resource room on wheels with twelve computer stations, printing and copying available to assist job applicants. CareerSource also offers specialized services for veterans and disabled veterans.
The Metro Job Fair is free and all are welcome to attend. Dress is business professional and candidates are asked to bring copies of their resume. To reserve your spot and learn more, we encourage you to visit JobFair.MetroPlaces.com.
