More than 40 employers and area universities will be participating in a job and career fair expected to draw hundreds of job seekers to downtown St. Petersburg Monday.
The Tampa Bay Times is hosting the fair, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Coliseum, 535 4th Ave. N.
Tampa Bay's unemployment rate improved slightly to 4.6 percent in August — based on numbers released Friday — but that means there are still about 70,000 people counted as actively looking for work in the area.
Job seekers should bring resumes, dress professionally and be ready to interview. Suncoast Human Resource Management Association also will be on hand offering free resume evaluations.
No pre-registration is required and parking will be available.
