In less than 48 hours, multiple employers have already filled roles with applicants from the job fair

AURORA, Co. -- This past Wednesday, Rep. Jason Crow (CO-06) hosted his first job fair with over 60+ employers from the Denver metro region at the Community College of Aurora. The job fair, which ran from 12:30 - 3:30pm, with early bird access for veterans and military families at noon, was attended by over 1,000 job seekers. 

“The Denver metro region is lucky to have a low unemployment rate, but that’s only half the story. Coloradans, like so many Americans, are working two, three jobs just to make ends meet. In our district, the issue is compounded by a lack of affordable housing options. Our job fair was an opportunity to provide a different kind of constituent service and connect job seekers with employers,” said Crow. “We’re thrilled with the success of the event and hope to continue to build the bridge between Colorado’s employers and job seekers.” 

“I never expected to end up in Congress. During college, I worked construction jobs between National Guard training and classes so I could afford tuition. Now, I’m grateful to be in a position where I can help my neighbors take the next step in their careers,” said Crow. “I want to extend my thanks to the employers for helping us build one of the largest job fairs to be held in the district, Aurora’s first responders who ensured a safe event, and the Community College of Aurora for hosting us for our inaugural job fair. This was a true community effort.” 

In addition to the employers, Crow’s job fair also featured multiple professional workshops for Coloradans looking to develop their skills. Featured workshops included Navigating Colorado’s Regulatory Landscape: Professional Licensure; Resume Building; LinkedIn & Digital Networking; and Opportunities for Veterans in Colorado.
