Looking for a job? Then get to Kent's ShoWare Center Tuesday, Nov. 22 for a job fair.

Representatives from more than 75 employers are expected to be at the fair that runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Congressmen Adam Smith, D-Tacoma, and Dave Reichert, R-Auburn, are hosting the Help Identify Real Employment, also known as HIRE, for American Jobs Fair.

“Adam and I understand that Washingtonians want their elected officials to work together to create an environment for economic growth,” Reichert said in a media release. “Our hope is that bringing local businesses and individual constituents together under one roof will increase employment in our communities. I am proud to be a part of this unique event and will continue to work across the aisle to help struggling families cope with these tough economic times."

Smith added the following comment.

“Dave and I are honored to co-host this event in Kent, a city we both represent,” said Smith. “We both strongly believe in working across party lines to address unemployment and improve our local and national economies. We are also committed to working together to empower individuals and strengthen our local community. Our goal is that this event will provide workers the skills and resources they need to find jobs, and make the holiday season less difficult for struggling families. That is and should always be a bipartisan effort.”

Participants are encouraged to bring resumes and be prepared to interview for openings. The fair is free and complimentary parking is available. No advance registration is needed.

The ShoWare Center is at 625 W. James St.
