LawCo. job fair is Tuesday
The Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce will host its second annual job fair on Tuesday from 2-6 p.m. in the Lawrence County Meeting Room. Information will be provided on education, military and employment opportunities, and everyone is welcome to attend. Kelly Aaron, manager at the Department of Workforce Services and event coordinator, said the DWS mobile unit will be on-site again this year.
"The unemployment rate is at 7.2 percent in Lawrence County right now," Aaron said. "But, I am also receiving a lot of job orders."
The job fair will feature employers in the county, servicing in the county or seeking to hire residents of the county.
Businesses are encouraged to participate in the event to help publicize the business, as well as help the public have an employment opportunity on an as-needed basis.
There is no charge for a business to set up, and there is still space available for booths. The booths will be filled on a first-come, first served basis.
For more information or to register for the event, contact Aaron at 870-886-8911 or 870-759-2400 or Kathy Bradley at the Chamber office at 886-3232.
