ABC13 partnered with Workforce Solutions Friday to host a virtual job fair that featured more than 1,000 jobs in the Galveston and Houston area.
Galveston has experienced a big swing in its unemployment rate.
In April 2020, it soared to 19.2%. Last month, it was at 6.9%.
A big reason for the decline is the re-emergence of hospitality jobs. Even more are coming soon.
Cruises are scheduled to restart in three weeks. Many industry companies are hiring now.

During the half-hour event each week, Workforce Solutions recruiters are available to offer free career advice.
There’s even an ABC13 viewer hotline you can call for help. The number is 832-849-0480. The ABC13 viewer hotline is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
