Job fair set in Shoals

Published 6:00am Wednesday, September 5, 2012

Since the first Northwest Alabama Job Fair was such a success, sponsors have decided to hold a second job fair to help those who are currently looking for work.
The second Northwest Alabama Job Fair will be held at Regency Square Mall on Wednesday, Sept. 18 from 10 a.m. -3 p.m.
The fair is hosted by Community Action Agency of Northwest Alabama, Children’s Trust Fund of Alabama, and the U.S. Department of Health Human Services’ division of Administration of Children and Families as a service of its Northwest Alabama Responsible Parenting Program.
The first Northwest Alabama Job Fair held at Regency Square Mall on June 20 not only had hundreds of job applicants in attendance but resulted in several jobs being filled.
Organizers said the district manager of a very popular store took over 100 applications, and hired their current assistant manager, who applied during the fair, and also hired several part-time and full-time employees.
Also, a local call center hired 10 applicants and a food retailer hired four applicants out of the 20 applications that were submitted.
There is still a need for jobs in the area and this job fair gives area residents access to more than 20 of the best-known employers in the Northwest Alabama area who will be on-site. Limited wifi will be provided by Verizon Wireless and the fair is free to the public.
If you are a blue collar or white collar worker in need of full-time, part-time or seasonal employment, bring a resume to center court at Regency Square Mall on Sept. 19 and don’t forget to dress for success.
