Bevill State Community College Division of Workforce Solutions, Workforce Development and Education Initiative of the Chamber of Commerce of Walker County, and Jasper Career Center have joined to host the 2021 Fall Career Fair on August 24, 2021, at the Jasper Civic Center from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event is free to both employers and job seekers. Employers from all industry clusters are welcome and will be given the option to conduct on-site interviews with interested job seekers.
“The Alabama Career Center System is proud to partner with the Chamber of Commerce and BSCC for this regional hiring event. Career Centers are an important part of the community, providing vital resources for employers and job seekers,” said Alicia Anderson, Jasper Career Center Manager
“The 2021 Fall Career Fair connects motivated job seekers with employers who are ready to hire. We frequently work with fellow agencies and this event provided the perfect opportunity to partner with the Chamber of Commerce of Walker County and Jasper Career Center to positively impact the workforce and regional economy,” said Al Moore, Dean of Workforce Solutions and Economic Development for Bevill State Community College.
There has been an overwhelming response, with sixty regional employers registered to attend and twenty-five of those employers prepared to interview on-site. Job seekers can apply to currently available positions in manufacturing, healthcare, IT, public safety, construction, professional services, customer service, and more. Registered employers report that at least 3,500 full-time positions are available and approximately 1,000 part-time positions. Some positions require no experience or education, while others require specialized experience, training, or an advanced diploma. “This is an incredible opportunity for individuals who want a job or a new career. With so many choices, there is an opportunity for anyone who is willing and ready to work,” says Amanda Clement Tice, Bevill State Workforce Solutions Specialist.
Capstone Rural Health Center will be on-site offering COVID-19 vaccinations to individuals ages 12 and older. There is no cost to receive a vaccination and no appointment is necessary. Those interested in receiving a vaccination will be asked to provide identification and an insurance card, if available. Whether an individual has insurance or not, there is no cost to the individual for the vaccination. Individuals requesting their second dose will be asked to present the vaccine card issued at their first vaccination.
“The Chamber of Commerce of Walker County created the Workforce Development and Education Initiative for exactly this type of situation. The chamber stands ready as an active force for addressing the workforce needs of our chamber members and the entire Walker County business and industry community,” said Linda Lewis, President of the Chamber of Commerce of Walker County.
