GLADEWATER, Texas (KLTV) - Gladewater has job openings, and they want to get the word out. Gladewater Economic Development Corporation has put together their first job expo to do just that. Executive Director of GEDCO Michelle Palmer says 18 companies are looking for employees.

“We’ve listened to the employers in Gladewater. Their main concern is that they’re having difficulty getting employees. So, we thought let’s partner together, the Chamber and GEDCO and Work Force East Texas, let’s partner together and se what we can do for this city to bring people together to be able to have jobs,” Palmer said.

The Job Expo is being held Thursday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Former Student’s Building, 2509 Hendricks Street in Gladewater. That’s directly behind the rodeo arena.
