Hi Jason,

I work for Hire Opportunities Career Fairs and noticed you are in Dallas.  I am hosting a career fair in Irving and one in Dallas in December and wanted to invite you to recruit at either or both of those events.  You can go to www.hireopportunities.net for more information and you can also use coupon code 40off for $40 off the registrations fee for either or both fairs!

Thanks!

Tamara
