Quite frankly, if you can’t find a job in this economy, you might want to take a good hard look at what you’re doing wrong because the jobs are out there – and there are a whole lot of them to boot. 

In recent weeks, there have been a host of job fairs in Guilford County – and now the latest call for workers comes from the City of High Point.

On Valentine’s Day, the city announced that its Public Services Department will host a “same-day hiring event” on Saturday, Feb. 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Roy B. Culler, Jr. Senior Center at 921 Eastchester Dr., Suite 1230, at Oak Hollow Mall in High Point.

The event is being held in an attempt to fill positions that include motor equipment operators, sanitation equipment workers and water sewer technicians.

Qualified applicants may very well receive a same-day offer at the event.

Local government jobs usually offer attractive benefits when compared to jobs in the public sector, and the City of High Point offers employees 401k matching, full-time and part-time benefits, training opportunities, career development and a chance for advancement.

Also, according to High Point officials, the positions that are now open allow for “work-life balance, flexible 4/10 work schedules, telehealth, medical flex spending, health savings account options and 12 paid holidays in addition to vacation and sick leave.”

The February 26 event is one of a host of job fairs that’s been announced recently.  Everyone from local law enforcement agencies to manufacturing companies across the county have been aggressive in hiring attempts in an economy that is seeing a giant shortage of labor.

Registration before attending the event is encouraged.  That can be done online at https://www.highpointnc.gov/PublicServiceJobs.
