"The goal of Saturday's Job Seekers' Expo is to provide a forum where people seeking employment can speak directly with potential employers as well as experts who can help them with practical advice, such as interview tips and polishing up their résumés," Giffords said in a press release.
The employers attending the event include GEICO, Canyon Ranch, Tucson Medical Center, the Transportation Security Administration and the Arizona Army and Air National Guards. A full list of attendees is below.
