Registration for the Tri County Job Fair — which expects to host about 60 employers on Aug. 22 — is now open to Sacramento-area job seekers.

The annual employment fair, held on the @the Grounds event site at 800 All American City Boulevard in Roseville, will offer attendees more than 2,000 job opportunities with some of the largest employers in the capital region.

Public sector employers confirmed for the job fair include both the city and county of Sacramento, El Dorado and Placer counties, the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, the California Prison Industry Authority and the state Office of System Integration.

Private employers include San Francisco Bay Coffee, The Gap, Sierra Pacific Industries, AppleOne, Red Hawk Casino, Thunder Valley Casino Resort and Ace Hardware.

The Tri County Job Fair is open to applicants of all backgrounds and experience levels, but its organizers suggest attendees come prepared with a firm, practiced handshake and dressed in professional businesswear, and prepare a 20-second elevator pitch.
