Employment opportunities coming soon at Ada Area Job Fair

Ada —  

The Ada Area Job Fair will take place 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 19, at the Pontotoc County Agri-Plex Convention Center, 1700 North Broadway.

Sponsors of the event said job fair provides the opportunity for many people to find the job that is right for them by meeting several employers all at one location. 

The job fair will host recruiters from a variety of industries including health care, finance, retail, transportation, customer service, construction and manufacturing among others.

This event is open to the public and no prior registration is needed to attend. Many of the participating businesses will conduct on-site interviews.

“The old saying of you never get a second chance to make a first impression holds true when meeting employers for the first time,” said Darrell Walker, manager of the Chickasaw Nation Career Services Department. “It is also very important that the job seeker bring plenty of resumes and is prepared to be interviewed the day of the job fair.”

Ada Area Job Fair is sponsored by the Chickasaw Nation, Murray State College, Workforce Oklahoma, Southern Workforce Board, Pontotoc County Commissioners, Call-A-Ride and the Ada Jobs Foundation.
