FreshStart Employment Second Chance Hiring Event

On April 06, 2023 FreshStart(FS) hosted an Employment Second Chance Hiring Event at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library. FreshStart Program participants were able to have same day interviews and some even had some day offers! People were able to interview and get hired for storekeeper, sanitation truck driver, laborer, and more! The City of Dallas Onboarding Team was also present to help FS participants complete their onboarding paperwork once hired.

Are you ready for a FRESH START?
