Governor’s Job Fair coming to The Communiversity


Dozens of potential em­ployers will interview job seekers and accept applica­tions during the Governor’s Job Fair that will take place June 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Communiver­sity at East Mississippi Community College.

The job fair is open, and free of charge, to all college students and area resi­dents.

The event is part of the Governor’s Job Fair Net­work of Mississippi, which connects job seekers and employers during job fairs held throughout the state. The job fair at The Commu­niversity is taking place in conjunction with EMCC WIOA Career Services’ summer “Employer in the Foyer.”

“This will be our largest job fair of the year,” WIOA Career Services Director Greta Miller said. “We usu­ally have a good number of local employers participate in Employer in the Foyer, which takes place most months of year at The Communiversity. The Gov­ernor’s Job Fair typically at­tracts employers from Mississippi and surround­ing states as well.”

Orange Beach, Alabama-based Columbia Southern University will attend and is looking to fill instructor and staff positions, while Halter Marine in Pascagoula is hir­ing pipefitters, pipe welders, electricians and engineers, just to name a couple of employers from outside the Golden Trian­gle area who have so far registered to attend.

Some employers are ex­pected to hire for immedi­ate openings while others will be recruiting for future openings.

“This is an excellent op­portunity for those seeking their first job out of school or those looking to explore new career paths,” Miller said.

The Governor’s Job Fair Network of Mississippi website contains a full list of employers participating in the June 7 event, as well as positions the companies are looking to fill. The web­site address is www.job­

The Communiversity is lo­cated in the community of Mayhew at 7003 S. Frontage Road, between EMCC’s Golden Triangle campus and PACCAR En­gine Company.
