Turnaround Houston, which combines the elements of a job fair and a resource center, is a community-based initiative created by Mayor Sylvester Turner in 2016. It is designed to help Houstonians turn their lives around by providing them with vital resources that can assist them with eliminating employment barriers.

“Turnaround Houston will connect job seekers to dozens of hiring employers in many industries, including with the City of Houston,” said Mayor Sylvester Turner. “I invite you to take advantage of this opportunity, which you can access virtually at no cost.”

Turnaround Houston is held in partnership with the Office of Business Opportunity, the Office of Council Member Carolyn Evans-Shabazz – Houston City Council District D, and Workforce Solutions.

“The City of Houston, along with our partners, remains committed to assisting Houstonians find opportunities for gainful employment. We encourage everyone who is on a job search to sign up for this event,” said OBO Director Marsha E. Murray.
