Steve Zea is with the local chamber in Attala County, known as the KADC (Kosciusko-Attala Development Corp.). He said this year's event, which is part of the Governor's Job Fair Network, has more quality employers than in the past.
"We have some new people coming in-Taylor Machine out of Louisville, Ingalls off the coast, Advanced Distributor Products out of Grenada, so this really is a regional job fair," he said.
Zea said that even though several of the companies will be presenting at other job fairs, Kosciusko is located in the geographic center of the state, meaning people can come to a central location to put in applications.
The event starts 9 a.m. Thursday at the Attala County Coliseum.
"There is no charge. We just ask people to come dressed appropriately, bring your resume, and ask for a job because these people are serious. We've got about 40 vendors coming and they're looking for people."
Zea said that there have been as many as 300 offers made on site during past events, with other offers made to applicants later.
"This will be a first class event. This will not be a waste of people's time."
The WIN Job Center Mobile Unit will be on hand if employers ask you to fill out an application online.
