Northeast Arkansas Intermodal, Randolph County Chamber of Commerce, and Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce will co-host a regional job fair from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, June 8 at Black River Technical College in the Randolph County Development Center on the Pocahontas campus.
The event will give job seekers access to available employment positions throughout Northeast Arkansas. Entry-level and skilled positions will be available for job seekers in fields such as healthcare, manufacturing, and law enforcement. Several second-chance employers will also be in attendance.
In addition to local employers, the Arkansas Department of Workforce Mobile Center will be available to help job seekers with resume building, skill testing, and other services.
Representatives from Black River Technical College will also be available to help job seekers sign up for classes.
Transportation to the job fair is available through Black River Area Development Corporation
(BRAD). Job fair participation for employers and job seekers is FREE. The regional job fair is a valuable resource, because it will bring a greater number of available jobs to one place, allowing applicants to learn about companies, job openings, and available benefit packages in a convenient manner. This job fair will have full time, part time, and seasonal positions.
“The NEA Intermodal, along with our regional chamber partners, are focused on identifying economic development opportunities and marketing the area to potential employers and talent,” stated NEA Intermodal Executive Director Graycen Bigger. “This is a great opportunity for job seekers to meet local executives, share their resume and secure a new career.”
Employers interested in participating should contact their local chamber of commerce office to sign up. A digital form is also located on the NEA Intermodal Facebook page.
Job seekers should come prepared for the job fair with copies of their resume, references, and identification.
