June Is American Job Fair Month

A group of young business professionals talking

The U.S. Department of Labor has declared June as “American Job Fair Month.” This was done to create an opportunity for the workforce system, local workforce offices, and all partners in the American Job Center Network, to promote their services to employers. USDOL is encouraging all states, local workforce boards, and American Job Centers to participate by sponsoring a job fair during the month of June.
