Employers from throughout the region will be on hand Tuesday, March 28, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Communiversity to accept applications and interview job seekers during the 2023 East Mississippi Job Fair.

The Mississippi Department of Employment Security is hosting the event, along with the Governor’s Job Fair Network of Mississippi. The job fair is free and open to the public. There is no cost to job seekers who wish to attend. Employers can register online at www.jobfairs.ms.gov to reserve a table.

The event is taking place in in conjunction with EMCC WIOA Career Services’ “Employer in the Foyer.”

“This is a great opportunity for job seekers to meet with employers across a wide range of industries,” WIOA Career Services Director Greta Miller said. “We will have employers from throughout our area and a few from out of state. This is our largest job fair of the year.”

Available positions run the gamut from food service workers, pipefitters, engineers, IT technicians, material handlers, CNAs, RNs and deckhands, to name a few.
