Multiple Express Employment Professionals offices in the region are planning to host a 12-hour job-a-thon event later in August to fill 1,500 immediate job openings.  

The phone-based interview event is scheduled for Aug. 24 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., according to a statement. The event allows job seekers to call their local Express offices anytime from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and immediately speak with a recruiter regarding their skills and interests, the release states. Instead of requiring job seekers to physically come into offices to apply for positions, job seekers can call Express at their convenience during the 12-hour event to explore local employment opportunities, the release adds.

Seven Express Employment offices in the region are participating in the event. Positions available include office services, industrial, skilled trades and professional. Positions are primarily evaluation hire or direct hire. There is no cost to the applicant for an interview. 

“Our goal for the Job-a-Thon is to connect with as many people on the phone as possible, and we’ll be doing an initial 15-minute phone interview, going over people’s work history, learning what they’re looking for, and then talking about the many opportunities within a variety of industries,” says Diane Frazer, local Express franchisee, in the statement. “After that, we’ll walk them through what the next steps are from there. As students are returning to class, and businesses are hiring- we are ready to get our community back to work and match people with local companies.”

Phone numbers for the participating local Express offices are below:

Bradenton: 941-753-0034

Brandon 813-502-6955

Clearwater: (727) 712-0607
