With unemployment still toying with 11 percent in Silicon Valley, chances are that you or someone you know is currently looking for a job. Well, there’s some good news finally. ABC 7 is hosting the HIREvent job fair today, and as many as 500 people could walk away with a salaried position. It’s not really a dent—it’s more like a scratch—but with the holidays fast approaching, 500 families will have reason to celebrate this year.

The job fair will be held at the Wyndham Hotel at 1350 North First Street from 11pm to 3pm.
