LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County Commissioners are hosting first large-scale job fair since the pandemic inside the Convention Center West Hall on Friday.

Commissioners are urging Nevadans to get back to work before the Federal Unemployment Extension Programs end in September.

The benefits that would end include the extra $300 a week and the programs for gig workers and others who don’t normally qualify for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance or PUA.

There will be more than 12,000 open positions available with more than 100 companies at Friday’s job fair. Some companies include Tesla, Amazon, Caesars Entertainment, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police and much more.
