Annual job fair set for Mar. 8 in Holly Springs
The annual Marshall-Benton Area Job Fair will be held from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Rust College McMillan Gymnasium on Thursday, March 8.
Job seekers are encouraged to attend the fair and visit with as many prospective employers as possible.
Dress is casual. Children should be left at home with a sitter.
Prospective hires are encouraged to bring a typed resume, but by no means is that a requirement. Employers will provide information on their businesses, job openings, job requirements and salaries.
On the day of the fair, prospective hires are encouraged to ask for help while looking at possible new job opportunities. Volunteers from the chambers of commerce, job fair committee, and Rust College will do everything possible to assist a job seeker and prospective employers to make it a successful and happy event for all.
The job fair is sponsored by the Governor’s Job Fair Network in Mississippi.
