OESC executive director Shelley Zumwalt and claims processor John Harris talks with claimant Richard Marrs at the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission's expo for jobless claims at the Tulsa Fairgrounds in Tulsa in July. The OESC will hold a job fair Thursday and Friday in Tulsa.

The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission will host a job fair Thursday and Friday in Tulsa for employers and job seekers alike.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Exchange Center at Tulsa Expo Square with veterans granted early access beginning at 8:30 a.m. each day.

Employers representing more than 3,600 open jobs have registered thus far for the event, which will also be held at other locations throughout the state.

“We are excited to welcome Tulsa-area residents to the career fairs we are hosting, and we are hopeful that these career fairs will help Tulsa-area employers find workers and help claimants find employment,” said OESC Executive Director Shelley Zumwalt.

“If you are looking for a job, I encourage you to come to Tulsa Expo Square and network with employers across a wide range of industries, including the technology, hospitality, construction, retail, manufacturing, finance and insurance industries.”

About 20,000 workers were unemployed in March, according to the OESC.

Pre-registration is not required, but the agency encourages workers in the Tulsa area to pre-register to attend the job fairs. Claimants who attend can fulfill their weekly work search requirement and network with local employers.

Job fairs will also be held in McAlester, Lawton, Enid and Oklahoma City. For those who are unable to attend in person, OESC is also hosting a virtual job fair starting Wednesday and running through May 28.

“Over the last year, Tulsa businesses have safely reopened, and they are looking to fill open positions to continue operating,” said Zumwalt. “We are confident that these career fairs will help rebuild Oklahoma’s workforce and strengthen Tulsa’s economy by providing employers and claimants with an opportunity to connect.”
