Aug. 15–There are many good, high-paying jobs to be had in New Mexico if the recent Kirtland Air Force Base-Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce Job Fair 2010 was any indication.
And there are still plenty of people hoping to land one, despite reports the recession is ending.
More than 840 people attended this year’s event at the National Hispanic Cultural Center on Aug. 4, along with nearly three dozen companies, federal agencies and other employers that had over 500 positions to fill.
“That was one of our requirements we asked employers,” said Synthia Jaramillo, of the Hispano Chamber of Commerce. “We didn’t want you to participate if you didn’t have real jobs.”
With assistance from co-sponsors Technology Ventures Corp.’s program called Wired, and New Mexico Tech Jobs, the event featured 34 employers, up from 20 last year. They ranged from Sandia National Laboratories and innovative high-tech companies like Mechtronics Solutions, Team Technologies and Poly-Flow Engineering, to Wells Fargo Bank, United Parcel Service and New York Life Insurance.
