A new year always represents an opportunity for a fresh start.

Sometimes that's just a life fresh start, but gotta have a job in order to live life right?

Well here's the perfect opportunity for you to grab both by the horns. The City of Amarillo is holding their first job fair of the year on Saturday, January 8th.

If you've never worked for the city, here's what you need to know. City jobs almost always have the best benefits available. Their health insurance tends to be second to none, something I've always been envious of (especially now with 3 kids).

Something else they offer you are scholarships for you and/or your family. That's right, they'll pay you to continue your education just for working for them!

Need to get a jump start on your retirement? They'll help you out with that too. Anything you contribute to your 401K, they'll match it at a rate of 2 to 1!

Not to mention competitive pay and you have a career you just can't say no to, right?

With that said, the city has SO many departments you can choose to work in. There really is something for just about anyone based on your interests or experience. At the job fair, they'll be looking to hire people for the following departments:

Public Works
Water Distribution
Street Department
Drainage Utilities
Animal Management
Parks & Recreation
Civic Center
Amarillo Emergency Communications Center
Fire Department

And that's not even all of them. They've got even more departments that need help. So go get yourself that fresh start. It's happening at the Downtown City Library on Saturday, January 8th from 10a-2p.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
