Over 55 companies took part in the 2010 Career Expo at the McAllen Convention Center, promising over 2,500 jobs to the Rio Grande Valley, Joangel Concepcion has more.
One of the major issues on people's minds this election day is the economy and lack of jobs. Well things are looking up in the Rio Grande Valley as the 2010 Career Expo opened its doors to thousands of people searching for work. The Career Expo had a little bit of everything for job seekers, from healthcare to truck driving, sales to law enforcement.
The expo is geared towards employers who are in need of good help. WorkForce Solutions, who hosted the event, plans to bring another career expo to the area in hopes of boosting the economy even more through out the Valley.
