There are hiring events across the Midstate, including Harrisburg, Lancaster, Carlisle, and Chambersburg. Some of the events will be in-person, others will be over Zoom. In Harrisburg, UPS is hoping to hire 650 employees. There are several positions to choose from.

“For individuals that might be looking for a job, it’s great to have holiday cash but then you have a longer peak season with UPS than you normally would,” Daneleee McCusker Rees, President of Human Resources-U.S. Domestic & Global Air Region at UPS said. “In addition to that, you have the opportunity to have your foot in the door at a Fortune 50 company to really make an impact and have a long-term career.”

The hiring event runs through Saturday.
