Chandler will host summer virtual hiring event
The City of Chandler, in partnership with ARIZONA@WORK Maricopa County, Career Connectors, Pipeline AZ and BestCompaniesAZ, will host a virtual hiring event that will launch on Tuesday, June 23. Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke and the City’s partners will kick off the event at 10 a.m.
“The City of Chandler is thrilled to offer the first City-sponsored, state-of-the-art virtual hiring event in the East Valley as the coronavirus pandemic continues,” stated Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke. “As the City partners with our workforce professionals in Maricopa County, we hope to provide residents relief through jobs and continue to work through the challenges brought on by the public health emergency. We are especially proud to connect Chandler companies with job seekers through this event.”
During the kickoff, employers will share information on their company, culture and career opportunities. Job seekers will be able to speak with the hiring managers and recruiters directly online and have access to some of Chandler’s top employers with hundreds of available positions.
