Employers needing seasonal workers ahead of the holiday season will meet with job seekers later this month in Springfield.
The Battlefield Mall Seasonal Hiring Event takes place Tuesday, Oct. 18, with open positions in retail, food services and more.
From 11 a.m.-4 p.m. multiple employers will gather at the main entrance to meet applicants.
“This is an opportunity to meet with some of the hiring managers. This should be treated like an interview,” Megan Short, communications coordinator for the department of workforce development, said.
