WASHINGTON, DC — The Internal Revenue Service announced today that it is looking to fill hundreds of full time and seasonal openings at its Memphis, Tennessee Processing Center. From this in-person, direct hiring event, potential new hires could be considered for an on-the-spot job offer and possibly begin working within 45-60 days. 

The event will be held Thursday, August 18th from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. at the Renasant Convention Center, 255 N Main Street, Memphis, TN 38103. It is open to the public. Walk-ins are welcome.
