Special Black Belt hiring event going on today in Greensboro

West AlabamaWorks! and the City Greensboro would like to invite you to a hiring event. The hiring event will be held Thursday, June 9th from 2pm to 6pm hosted at the National Guard Armory located at 515 Greene Street, Greensboro, Alabama.

The goal of the hiring event is to reach individuals that are not working or looking for a new career path or trade to become financially stable and career oriented.

“As we continue our Regional Workforce Hiring Event Tours, we want to connect local business and industry with qualified candidates to fill multiple positions,” said Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama COO and West AlabamaWorks! Executive Director Donny Jones. “Events like these make it possible to showcase regional employers in a way that will encourage jobseeking community members to take advantage of the career opportunities available in Alabama’s Black Belt region,” said Jones.

Industry partners include Peco, Foster Farms, Prystup Packaging Products, Coastal Industrial Contractors, Hale County Healthcare Authority, Whitfield Regional Hospital, Naos Staffing LLC, DCH Health System, Phifer Incorporated, The Westervelt Company, Love’s and Speedco Truck Care, Globe Life Insurance, and additional employers on westalabamajobs.com.

“We know that many West Alabama employers in various industries from construction to manufacturing to healthcare face extraordinary challenges when it comes to finding qualified candidates,” said Llevelyn Rhone, President, Hale County Chamber of Commerce. “We also know that finding the right employer and career is challenging for many Hale County residents. Having a hiring event in our community helps lessen the burden on both parties — making it as easy as possible for both employers and job seekers to connect. West Alabama- Works! understands the needs of both groups and events like this bridge the gap between employers and job seekers in this incredibly tight job market,” said Rhone.

Job candidates are encouraged to dress in a business- casual style and treat the event like a job interview. Bring copies of your resume, not required to attend. This will be a comeand- go event and is free and open to the public.

The hiring event is a partnership between West AlabamaWorks!, the Hale County Chamber of Commerce, the Alabama Career Center, and Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services.
