PHOENIX, AZ (February 3, 2021) — Starting on March 15, Arizona job seekers, students looking for internships and recent graduates looking for full time opportunities can participate in the UNMET Jobs hiring event. The event is hosted on Largely©, an online platform that empowers job seekers to showcase their personalities, professional work and career goals through short, simple videos for prospective employers. The hiring event, which is open to all Arizona businesses, aims to improve the traditional job fair experience for both job seekers and employers and will be one of the largest in the state.
