The in-person Career Expo runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Exhibition Hall and features recruiters from a host of industries, ­including technology, transportation, retail, banking, health care, hotel and hospitality sales, real estate and education.

"Last year, thousands of people participated in our live and virtual career expos to connect with hundreds of recruiters and HR managers throughout the state, " said Denise Ching, classified advertising manager at the Star-­Advertiser.
