ERLANGER, KY (FOX19) - DHL Express has announced the beginning of a hiring fair.

With construction of its 193,000 square foot addition at the CVG hub scheduled to be completed in early November, DHL Express has nearly 100 immediate positions available and another 200 available with start dates before the end of November.
