In These Unprecedented Times, We Are Stronger Together

For the past seven years, the Spokane Workforce Council has partnered with KHQ and WorkSource Spokane to offer the region’s largest annual hiring event. This year, in light of the COVID-19 public health crisis, we are working together to connect businesses and job seekers in a new way. Together, we can help our local economy weather this storm and come out stronger on the other side. We will be facilitating virtual hiring events, connecting essential businesses with people who need to work right now, and highlighting stories of how our community can help struggling businesses stay open through this difficult time. We hope to offer the in-person job fair in May of 2021 if social distancing measures are no longer needed. Spokane, we are stronger together!
