Over 500 people attended the job fair hosted by Alta Resources last weekend, and the company says 264 people were hired with many more still going through the recruiting process.
Alta had announced plans to hire 1,000 people ahead of the Affordable Care Act’s open enrollment period.
“The Job Fair was a great kickoff to our employee-recruitment effort. We hope that word will spread, and more people will apply,” said Paul Makurat, the company’s Managing Director for its Fort Myers office located at 12600 Gateway Boulevard.
“We offer a fun, casual environment, flexible schedules and paid training. All of the open positions are seasonal, but strong performance can lead to regular positions based on business needs,” said Makurat.
