The Glenwood Springs Workforce Center will host a winter hiring event on October 31, connecting job seekers with a diversity of employment opportunities. The Garfield County Winter Job Fair takes place from 1:30 PM to4:30 PM at the Glenwood Springs Library 815 Cooper Ave. in Glenwood Springs. Representatives from more than 20 businesses will be at the event with full-time and part-time positions to be filled.
