ABC13 Job Fair and Workforce Solutions: Katy employers are looking to hire immediately

Katy, TX (KTRK) – Katy employers are desperately looking for workers, and ABC13 has a chance for job seekers to get a job quickly.

The Workforce Solutions office in Katy looks a lot different than it did a year ago.

“Last summer, we were on the phone or completely online,” said Kristi Padula, director of officers. “We haven’t seen anyone face to face. It’s so much nicer. We can have that personal interaction with people.”

The agency wants to help as it works with a number of employers looking to hire. There are a lot of jobs in the Katy area in the fields of education, oil and gas and healthcare.

“If you want to work in those industries, there’s a lot you can do other than those big head jobs you might think of. Don’t let that scare you,” Padula said.

One way to take advantage of these jobs is by participating in the ABC13 virtual job fair. Thursdays at 11:30am To participate, simply search for a live video on our website or wherever you stream ABC13. To view jobs, Visit the Workforce Solutions website, and find the “As Seen in ABC13” section.

Over the past year, our weekly events have helped over 350 people find jobs.

This week, employers are looking to hire more.

“They want to hire right away,” Padula said. “They desperately need people. It can happen. It happens all the time. We have employers who are hiring for future jobs, but we have a lot of employers who need people.”

During the half-hour event, you can also learn about other programs, including new coaching and year-long childcare. If you live in the Katy area and are looking for help, you can call or go in person to the Workforce Solutions website.

“Call us,” Padula said. “We’ll set you up to talk to someone who’s excited to help you get back to work.”

If you need help, you can call the ABC13 hotline 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 713-243-6663.
