Over the past few days, it's seemed like Tampa has gone on a citywide hiring spree.  Despite unemployment numbers that are still pretty high, jobs in Tampa are proliferating due in part to companies like Progressive car insurance, and now TruGreen lawn care hiring hundreds of employees in the Tampa Bay area.

175 new TruGreen employees to be exact.  The company is hiring for inside sales, supervisor and management positions at their new contact center situated in the Netpark office campus in North Tampa.  Seasonal sales associate as well as permanent management positions are being offered.

There are two ways to apply.  One way is to head to TruGeen's job fair orientation sessions at their offices (5701 East Hillsborough Avenue) on Saturday, January 28 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.  Each session is 30 minutes long.

Candidates can also apply online at http://jobs.trugreen.com/florida/call-center/.

Good luck to all those seeking jobs in Tampa.
