TAMPA, Fla. — With the economy on the rebound, employers are hiring once more – and there are a few job fairs in the Tampa Bay area to consider.

Both are open for applicants looking for a new job or an entirely different career. The U.S. Labor Department in March added 916,000 jobs, which economists said was a sign that a recovery from the coronavirus pandemic is actually happening. 

Still, there remain about 8 million jobs short of what the economy had prior to last year's shutdowns.
