FloridaWorks, in collaboration with the Oaks Mall, is hosting an informational session on Thursday for stores in the mall that are looking for people to fill more than 100 job openings during the upcoming holiday season.

FloridaWorks employees will be in the Belk pavilion, across from Cotton On and Buckle, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the mall, 6419 Newberry Road.

Positions range from entry to managerial level, both temporary and permanent, according to a news release. The FloridaWorks tabling area will serve as a one-stop informational area for job seekers. Attendees will learn which businesses are hiring, expected hiring dates and the employers' preferred method of contact and application submission. Job booklets containing available positions will also be available.

More than 20 stores — including Express, Macy's, Aeropostale, Spencer's and Things Remembered — are participating by posting their available jobs online at www.EmployFlorida.com, the state's job-matching database.

Applicants should register in advance on www.EmployFlorida.com, attend the informational showcase and bring multiple copies of their resume. Dress for this event is business casual. The first 50 attendees to bring proof of EFM registration (username) will be eligible to receive a $25 valued gift certificate from Gift Certificates and More.
