SANTA FE – New Mexico state government will be holding a four-day Rapid-Hire Event this week in Albuquerque aimed at fast-tracking hiring for hundreds of vacant state jobs all over New Mexico. Here is a statement from the Governor’s office:

Every state agency with vacancies will participate in the event Dec. 11-14. Not every agency will be hiring every day of the event – see the schedule below. See detailed information and available positions on the State Personnel Office website at

Screeners will be on-hand to review applicant resumes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Interviews will continue as far into each afternoon as needed. 

“We’re proud of the family-friendly workplace we’ve created in state government, and we want everyone to know this is a great place to work,” Gov. Lujan Grisham said. “Come join us and help us build the best service-oriented state government in the country.”

The event will be held at the Tingley Coliseum at Expo New Mexico in Albuquerque. Job seekers outside the Albuquerque metro area and Santa Fe may participate by going to their local New Mexico Workforce Connections office to set up interviews by video-conference. (See list of statewide office locations below.)

Rapid-hire events are designed to attract applicants and simplify the hiring process by providing on-site job interviews. Selected applicants can receive a conditional job offer the same day or shortly after. If possible, applicants should identify positions for which they are applying ahead of time. However, human resources staff will be on hand to help guide candidates to openings that match their experience and interests.

Candidates may apply for two jobs per day of the job fair, and if you qualify, you will be scheduled for an interview.

Applicants should bring copies of an updated resume, three supervisory references, a school transcript and proof of right to work in the United States. Professional attire is recommended.
