Coastal Bend College will join forces with Texas Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend and the Kingsville Chamber of Commerce to host a community job fair at the CBC Kingsville Campus on Thursday from 1 to 5 p.m.

The event is open to the public and will feature some of the area’s top employers as well as new employers that are bringing in new job opportunities.
