Bryan County and area residents who are looking for work will have the chance to scope out local job opportunities Thursday when the Development Authority of Bryan County will host job fair in Pembroke.
Co-sponsored by the city of Pembroke and North Bryan Chamber of Commerce, the job fair is from 3-6 p.m. at the J. Dixie Harn Community Center in Pembroke.
“We have some new industries coming into Bryan County, and they’re all looking to hire,” Josh Fenn, executive director of the Development Authority of Bryan County said. “They’re taking applications and some of them have expressed interest in having a job fair. So after some conversations we decided to host one.”
Industries from Interstate Centre, including Matson Logistics, Savannah Global Solutions, Daniel Defense and Blue Bell Ice Cream along with Pembroke’s CZM Foundation Equipment and others, will be on hand to recruit jobs for their companies.
“We hope everyone out in the community who is interested in one of the companies looking to find work, advance their career or move closer to home will come out and meet with these companies and see what opportunities are out there for them,” Fenn said. “Hopefully we’ll have a match.”
He added it is important to host events like this to make sure residents have ample opportunity to find out about the local job market.
