FROM THE DIRECTOR
The Governor’s Job Fair Network is a unique, proactive, employment assistance resource for the unemployed, employers, and communities of Mississippi. The Job Fair creates an environment that facilitates the hiring process with the ultimate objective being job placement. Our goals are accomplished through community-based job fairs offered throughout the state. The job fairs, coordinated by the Governor’s Job Fair Network are presented in conjunction with local community efforts to provide people looking for jobs the opportunity to apply for jobs with a number of different employers in a centralized, user-friendly setting. For business and industry, the job fairs provide their human resource representatives the opportunity to interview a variety of potential employees. Many job seekers receive job offers on the day of the job fair, while others are required to complete additional screening for current and future position vacancies.
