More than 300 jobs are available through Tuesday's job fair at the East Bay HIREvent in Concord, sponsored by ABC7 and the Job Journal.

More than a dozen employers are looking to fill job openings. Job openings have been on the rise lately, a strong indication that employers are slowly increasing their hiring. However, many people are still looking for jobs. Unemployment in Contra Costa County is at 9.3 percent, down from what it was in the fall of 2011, but the trends still look good.

The event starts at noon and runs until 4 p.m. at the Centre Concord, at 5298 Clayton Road in Concord. Experts will be on-site evaluating resumes for free.
