Published 4:47 pm Thursday, July 28, 2022
Next week, nearly 70 employers will join together at Wallace Junior College in Selma, Alabama for a job fair organized by U.S. Congresswoman Terri Sewell.
The 11th Annual Job Fair will take place on Thursday, August 4 in the gymnasium of Wallace Junior College. The event starts at 10 a.m. and will end at 2 p.m.
“We have a phenomenal and diverse group of employers confirmed for this year’s 11th Annual Job Fair which is nearly one week away!” Rep. Sewell said. “My job fair is all about bringing opportunities to our doorstep and empowering people with the tools and resources they need to thrive. I’m so excited to be welcoming these employers to the heart of Alabama’s Black Belt so that my constituents can benefit from the many open positions that are available today. I hope you’ll consider joining us for what is shaping up to be an exciting and successful event!”
The employers attending the event stretch over 14 industries, helping job seekers find a position that will fit their skillset.
The job fair is hosted in different locations each year to ensure that the unique needs of each community are met, Sewell said. Last year’s job fair was held in Bessemer, Alabama. Fifty employers and approximately 500 job seekers attended the event.
The job fair is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is recommended, but on-site registration will be available the day of the event. Pre-registration can be completed at Sewell’s website, sewell.house.gov.
