Company human resource officials said today that they are expecting several hundred South Sound residents to show up for tomorrow’s State Farm career fair at Tacoma’s Hotel Murano.

The insurance company, which has several hundred employees in its downtown office tower, said earlier that it will be adding more than 200 more this fall. Not all will be entry-level, but those that are will be paying $16 per hour, a 16 percent increase over its former starting pay.

Persons interested in a job interview on Tuesday for the new openings should complete an online application before arriving at the job fair. Here is the link, then search jobs in Washington.
