Annual Pine Belt Job Fair Set for Nov. 7 at Lake Terrace Convention Center | Events
The task of finding a good job can prove daunting in these stringent economic times. The 2012 Pine Belt Job Fair, set for Nov. 7 at the Hattiesburg Lake Terrace Convention Center, can certainly help.
The Job Fair, which is part of Gov. Phil Bryant’s Job Fair Network, will be held from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. The fair is free and open to everyone – but especially those seeking employment.
“This job fair has a tremendous effect on Hattiesburg and the entire Pine Belt,” said Amy Yeend, assistant director of Career Services at The University of Southern Mississippi and a member of the fair’s planning committee. “Due to the economic situation of the last few years, so many people in our community are either unemployed or underemployed. By providing an opportunity for job seekers to connect with employers and real opportunities, this event gives them a chance to better provide for themselves and their families.”
