YAZOO CITY, MS – If you are looking for a job, you should attend the Yazoo County Area Job Fair from 9:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 10, at the National Guard Armory, 2201 Gordon Ave, Yazoo City.
This job fair will provide you with access to employers seeking talented candidates in many disciplines, from financial services, corrections, shipbuilding, social work and more.
Many local employers and employment resource organizations will be participating in the free event. No pre-registration is required for job seekers. However, those who do pre-register will be issued a printable 30-minute-early attendance ticket. To pre-register, click the Job Candidate Registration link at www.jobfairs.ms.gov.
“As Governor, it is my duty to ensure that our state is doing all it can to create an environment that produces secure employment opportunities for Mississippians. The Governor’s Job Fair Network was created as an avenue to place Mississippi’s most attractive resource – our people – in front of business and industry. By facilitating connections between job seekers and employers who have real positions to fill, this self-sustaining program helps Mississippians invest in their futures,” says Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant.
The Governor’s Job Fair is a community sponsored, one day event that brings together a diverse group of employers actively looking for employees. Each Job Fair is FREE and open to anyone looking for a job. Employers are assembled to offer real job opportunities to those individuals looking for employment. The Job Fair is distinguished from a career day in that job placement rather than career exploration is the main objective and expected outcome.
“With the closing of Yazoo City’s WIN Job Center in 2013, our Yazoo Area Job Fair is always a welcome and needed opportunity for our job seekers,” said Cobie Collins, President of the Yazoo County Board of Supervisors and President of the Yazoo County Economic Development District. “Our Job Fair works well for our job seekers. Yazoo County Area’s 2013 Job Fair resulted in 215 job offers on the day of the Fair, and nearly twice as many projected hires after the event.”
“We make it a priority to provide resources and to respond to the needs of our business community,” said Collins. “This Job Fair is one opportunity we can take advantage of by partnering with statewide organizers to help residents and help strengthen business in our area.”
From the Federal Bureau of Prisons to Huntington Ingalls Industries, there will be a variety of employers at the fair to meet many desired fields of employment. For a full listing, visit www.jobfairs.ms.gov.
The Yazoo County Area Job Fair is a part of the Governor’s Job Fair Network, and is sponsored by the Office of the Governor, the Mississippi Development Authority, the Mississippi Department of Employment Security, and the Mississippi Development Authority.
