“Any person that’s looking to obtain a job, or to upgrade a job, to come out and be prepared, look the part, have a good resume, and interact with these employers.”

Richmond says about one thousand job openings are available through the various employers, which include UPS, Kroger, Norton Healthcare and Jewish Hospital.
