OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Now that things are opening back up, employers on the hunt for people to fill open positions. If you’re looking for a job, you might try Jobapalooza this weekend.

According to a release from Heartland Workforce Solutions, the event is scheduled on Saturday, June 26 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and will be held outside at 5752 Ames Avenue.

“Based on our phone calls and experience, workers who were displaced during the pandemic or who are looking for other opportunities are anxious to get back to work. On the flip side, businesses are urgently searching for new staff so we think this relaxed, but intentional event will facilitate those connections,” said Stan Odenthal, director of business relations for Heartland Workforce Solutions.

Employers are looking to fill positions in:

  • Business and professional services
  • Construction
  • Healthcare
  • Hospitality
  • Information technology
  • Transportation distribution and logistics
  • Manufacturing and others
