Residents in Scott County and surrounding communities will have the opportunity to visit with local recruiters and apply for career opportunities at a Spring job fair on Friday, April 13, 12:30-3:30 p.m., in the Waldron High School Gymnasium, which is located at 1560 West 6th Street. This event is free and open to the general public.
More than 30 representatives from local businesses, colleges, military recruiters, apprenticeship programs and social organizations are expected to be in attendance. The Arkansas Department of Workforce Services’ mobile unit will also be on site during the fair. Mobile Workforce Centers are equipped with computers allowing full internet connectivity and all-in-one (print, copy, and scan) functions. Job seekers will be able to create resumes and then subsequently submit applications online.
“This event was designed to assist job seekers in Waldron and surrounding communities with finding gainful employment,” states Olan James, one stop operator for Western Arkansas. “We are bridging the gap between local qualified candidates and employers by bringing technology to the areas where it is most needed.”
