AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) – Workforce Solutions Panhandle announced that it will partner with the Texas Veterans Commission and The Texas Workforce Commission to host the 11th annual “Hiring Red, White & You!” job fair on Thursday, Nov. 10.

As noted by the event announcement, the job fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Workforce Solutions Panhandle, located at 3120 Eddy in Amarillo. Veterans will be given priority of service and be able to attend throughout the event, but the fair’s doors will open to the public at noon.

Organizers detailed that a total of 38 employers will be present at the event, including Pantex, the Texas Department of Transportation, Tyson Foods, International Aerospace Coatings, Cacique Foods, AAA Electric, and others.
