(ABC 6 News) – As many businesses in the Med City have been in dire need of employees, one Rochester business is hosting a 24-hour job-a-thon, to help the community find jobs.

Running from noon Thursday afternoon, through the night, and ending at noon on Friday, Express Employment Professionals say they are determined to do whatever it takes to get the workforce back to what it was pre-pandemic.

“To raise awareness with the community to say ‘hey we gotta get people back to work,’ I think it’s gonna be difficult soon to ever be able to get a burger after 5 o’clock in this town if we don’t get people off the sidelines and back to work,” said Jeff Jensen, the managing partner at Express Employment Professionals.

At the job-a-thon, people looking to get a job can get on-the-spot interviews with employers and find a job that is best for them.

There are also fun games, prizes, and food. For when the sun goes down, there will be a large bonfire in the parking lot to keep everyone warm.
