City to hold region-wide hiring event at Bristol Motor Speedway

BRISTOL, TN (WJHL) – For the second time this year, the City of Bristol is hosting a hiring expo. City officials say due to the success of a previous event held back in May, it is holding another hiring event to help local employers connect with job-seekers in our region.

Bristol is hosting the hiring event on October 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Bristol Motor Speedway’s South Building.

Back in May, more than 40 Bristol employers saw nearly 1600 job seekers. Some of the job seekers, according to Bristol officials, traveled more than 100 miles to attend.

“The success of the Hiring Expo in May served as proof of a very real opportunity to meet the needs of our local industries and businesses, as well as those of area residents who are seeking employment,” said Economic Development Director Tom Anderson. “Since that time, the growth of many of those same employers, as well as a few news ones, coupled with the demand for a larger seasonal workforce during the holidays demonstrated a need to hold this event again,” he added.
