Why is there a charge to attend this event?

The cost to host this event exceeds $20,000. We rely on private donations to cover the cost of this event. We do not use public funding (Grants or government funds) to pay for expenses. Our volunteers work hard to make this event a reality and afford job seekers face-to-face opportunities with employers looking for their skills. The alternative for most job seekers is to apply online and wait for a response. However, most job seekers prefer the face-to-face. All proceeds from this event fund Project Hero to Hire and Project Hope.

What is the mission of the 10,000 Best Jobs Expo®?

The mission of this event is to motivate, inspire and energize our communities; induce hope, encourage action and create a platform for economic recovery. This event brings our communities face-to-face with employers looking for their skills.

How does the 10,000 Best Jobs Expo® connect our communities?

Employers today with open positions are just as eager in filling their open positions with the right talent as job seekers are in finding employment. Yet, job seekers find themselves disconnected from the employers who are looking for their skills. This event brings employers and job seekers together to create employment opportunities for thousands in one day.

What types of employers Exhibit at the 10,000 Best Jobs Expo®?

Exhibitors represent every industry, and attend to hire skilled professionals to fill their open positions. Applicants participate to present their skills as they network with hundreds of employers and employment resources in-person.
