Insight Global, a leading national staffing agency dedicated to empowering people through opportunity, is inviting all local residents to attend an immersive, completely free experience this Saturday, February 18 aimed at providing personalized, one-on-one career counseling. All Houston-metro area job seekers who want to gain confidence and access to job resources like writing a resume, interview skills or headshots– are encouraged to register and attend. Free childcare will also be available.
“We’re committed to inspiring and empowering job seekers with skills needed to create a brighter future,” said Bree Davis, Social Impact Manager for Insight Global. “Whether you are looking for a job, or simply want to get career ready for your next move, we are thrilled to bring this transformative experience to Houston. We kicked off our tour in Atlanta, and nine out of ten attendees felt more confident and inspired after the event. We want to bring that same confidence to our Houston community, so we encourage everyone to attend.”
This first-of-its-kind experience will take place on Saturday, February 18 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at POST Houston International Food Hall (401 Franklin Street, Houston, TX 77002). It will be full of the experts, technology and tools that will help job seekers as they look for jobs or think about a career. Whether it’s needing more access to resources, technology or even the childcare that a job search often requires, Insight Global is working to remove these barriers and meet people where they are to enable a better future for them.

In particular, AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander), BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color), first generation college grads, unhoused individuals, individuals with disabilities, LGBTQIA, justice impacted, single-income families, veterans, women and young adults. Throughout the country, many communities face challenges when it comes to entering the workforce or career betterment—from social and economic inequality to disenfranchisement.
