The Jones County Economic Development Authority will host the I-59 Job Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday at Sawmill Square Mall in the old JCPenney space.
EDA officials hope to provide Jones County residents with the tools they need to successfully reenter the workforce. There is no admission fee for applicants to attend. Masks are required for individuals who are not fully vaccinated.
Pre-registration is highly encouraged and can be done online at www.jobfairs.ms.gov. Applicants should bring registration confirmation and provide it at the check-in station on the day of the job fair.
There will be onsite registration available for those who do not pre-register online. Applicants should be prepared for on-site interviews and bring plenty of resumes because copiers will not be available. Contact the WIN Job Center for resume help.
“Dress for success and take advantage of this great opportunity!,” EDA officials said to applicants in a press release.
