The Council for Economic Opportunities hosted a hiring event with JACK Cleveland Casino and JACK Thistledown Racino on Thursday, as part of its ongoing mission to help connect people in the Cleveland area with a living wage job.

Representatives from JACK were looking to hire cashiers, servers, cooks, security officers and buffet staff among other positions. After a brief presentation about the available positions and the kind of people JACK was looking for, candidates completed one-on-one introductory interviews with the representatives from JACK. As this was just the first step in the hiring process, those candidates were then encouraged to continue the application process online.

Prior to Thursday’s event, CEOGC staff worked with applicants to improve their resumes and practice their interview skills. JACK Casino was looking to fill more than 30 positions –  both full time and part time – between the two locations. Nearly 40 candidates were on hand to interview for the open jobs.

We wish the best of luck to all the applicants!
