‘Tis the season for jobs! With the holiday season approaching, businesses are in search of employees to fill temporary job openings. FloridaWorks, in collaboration with the Oaks Mall, is hosting an event to showcase Mall job openings on Thursday, August 29 10am-1pm at the Oaks Mall, 6419 Newberry Road. FloridaWorks will be located in the Belk pavilion, across from Cotton On and Buckle.

FloridaWorks is working with more than 20 stores in the mall, such as Express, Macy’s, Aeropostale, Spencer’s, and Things Remembered to post and promote over 100 available positions. Positions range from entry to managerial level.

Interested applicants are encouraged to register in advance on www.EmployFlorida.com, EFM, the state of Florida’s job matching database; attend the hiring event; and bring multiple copies of their resume. Dress for this event is business casual. At the hiring event, attendees will learn which businesses are hiring, prospective timeline for hire, and the employers’ preferred method of contact.  The first 50 attendees to bring proof of EFM registration (username) will be eligible to receive a $25 valued gift certificate from Gift Certificates and More.
