With just over a month to go before the long-awaited opening of Fashion District Philadelphia, the new urban mall is holding a job fair next week for retail positions.
The Aug. 20 event will be held in conjunction with PA CareerLink, which will host the event at their Suburban Station location from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The new mall at the site of the former Gallery, redeveloped by PREIT and Macerich, will bring more than 1,000 new jobs to Philadelphia. Retail tenants will be in attendance at the job fair in Center City.
Registration is required to receive a specific time slot to attend the job fair and can be done at Fashion District Philadelphia's Eventbrite page. Applicants must bring 10-20 copies of their resume.
A list of retailers who will be hiring was revealed last month to round out the project's roster of stores.
