Thursday, March 19, the Copiah-Lincoln Community College 2020 Pathways Job Fair will be held at the Billy B. Thames Conference Center in Wesson, MS. The doors will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and the community is welcome to attend this free event. Human resource recruiters representing local and regional employers will be available to speak with job seekers.
“We want the community to take full advantage of this event, as we’ve worked hard to recruit employers from all over the region to attend, network with job seekers and accept resumes and applications,” said Workforce Education Director Stephenie Sullivan. “There’s no other event in Southwest Mississippi that will have this number of employers under one roof. All job seekers should make this event a priority.”
