Job fair March 3 in Holly Springs
By BARRY BURLESON
The Marshall-Benton Area Job Fair is just six weeks away.
The sixth annual event will be held Tuesday, March 3, in the McMillan Gymnasium on the campus of Rust College in Holly Springs.
The planning committee held its most recent meeting last week at Annie’s Restaurant.
Several employers have already signed up for the job fair. Many more are needed.
Joe Buckner, director of the Governor’s Job Fair Network, said two things will make the event successful – employers with real jobs and applicants to show up.
This is an excellent opportunity for companies to meet their employment needs, he said.
It is open to job seekers from the general public as well as university, college, and community college graduates.
There is no admission fee.
The job fair is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 3. Employer sign-in and set-up is 2-5 p.m. Monday, March 2, and from 7-8:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 3.
Please contact Buckner at (601) 321-6154, Bessie Glass at (601) 321-6122 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Persons may also call Amy Heaton, executive director of the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce, at (662) 252-2943; or Sarah Sawyer, executive director of the Byhalia Area Chamber of Commerce, at (662) 838-8127.
