ROY — Weber County will be holding a special event designed to provide job seekers with information about some of the positions and employment perks that are available within the county government.

The first-ever Weber County Career Expo, organized by the county’s Human Resources Department, is slated for 1:30-4:30 p.m. Thursday at the Weber County Library System’s Southwest Branch, located at 2039 W. 4000 South in Roy.

Aubrey Vigil — an HR generalist with the county — noted that there will be 18 booths at the event, and they’ll feature a cross section of Weber County’s various departments, including the Weber County Sheriff’s Department.

Representatives from those departments will be answering questions about current and future job openings. They’ll also be providing general info about their offices and discussing committees and special assignments that are of public interest.

Additionally, members of the county’s HR team will be answering questions related to departments not in attendance, as well as the benefits that county employees receive.

“(The team is) trying to get those departments out and talking to citizens and potential job seekers about what opportunities they have and how to start careers in those areas,” Vigil told the Standard-Examiner. “Because, if you go talk to somebody out there and say, ‘Hey, how do you get hired at Weber County?’ Not a lot of people know the answer to that.”

While attendees aren’t required to bring anything to the job fair, they’re being encouraged to bring physical resumes to receive tips for making them stronger or to help identify potential job fits.

Having a digital resume copy on hand also is encouraged, as laptops will be available on-site for applying to jobs or signing up for job notifications.

“There is something for everybody at Weber County,” Vigil added. “Whether you’re starting out and you want part-time work while you’re in school or you want a summer job, or you’re looking to start a career, or you’re just looking for something after retirement, there’s something for everybody regardless of their background, education, anything like that.”
