Motlow State Accepting Vendors for HIRING Fair

LYNCHBURG, TN (March 27, 2017) — Motlow State Community College will host its annual HIRING Fair Tuesday, April 4, on the Moore County campus. The fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Forrester Student Center, Lincoln County Bank Dining Hall.

Area companies and staffing agencies are invited to participate free of charge. For more information or to reserve space, contact Brenda Cannon, director of special events, at bcannon@mscc.edu or 931-393-1548.

According to Cannon, the HIRING Fair is a collaboration between the Tennessee Department of Labor (TDOL), Workforce Development, MAXIMUS, and Motlow State. The fair is open to all job seekers, including students and the public. Employment opportunities range from full-time to part-time to temporary as well as summer employment.

"Although the unemployment rate continues at record lows, employers still have a need to recruit and hire employees who have a proven work ethic, are flexible, and are willing to learn new skills," Cannon said. "We encourage job seekers to come prepared with resumes and questions as they may speak directly with potential employers. With hundreds of Motlow State students preparing to graduate in May, this could be the skilled, job-ready pool of applicants employers seek."

An added feature to this year's event is the Career Coach. Sponsored by TDOL, the career coach staff provides the same services available at the Tennessee Career Centers. Career Coaches are equipped with computer workstations, internet access, and Microsoft Office software which provides job seekers the ability to search statewide databases for employment opportunities that are placed directly from employers. Additionally, the staff provides support with on-site resume writing and critiquing and interviewing tips and skills.

The HIRING Fair is another service provided to the community by Motlow State.
