Job Opportunities for Displaced Workers

A Message from Chairman Jakes

These are challenging times. As we continue to practice social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, millions of Americans are struggling from being out of work. We want to help connect displaced workers with companies working on the front lines to keep our communities safe and comfortable. Below, we have compiled job openings in essential industries. To start, we are listing job opportunities in the Dallas area, because your next job could be in Dallas, but we will continue to add openings nationwide as they become available. Stay safe and take care of yourselves and each other!
