PRESS RELEASE:

RALEIGH SUPER JOB FAIR

When: April 8, 2014

 

  • Location: 3295 Coleman Rd. @ Austin Peay Hwy
  • Time: 9 am – 1 pm

 

MEMPHIS, TENN, April 2, 2014 – Raleigh United Methodist Church in Raleigh is poised to host over 1000 job seekers this Tuesday, April 8th. The bi-annual job fair has more than thirty perspective employers ready to take applications, interview applicants and possibly hire on site.

"These job fairs have become increasingly more important given the fact that the state has closed some of the Tennessee career centers in the area," says State Representative Antonio Parkinson, event partner. "I applaud Raleigh United Methodist and its undying efforts for pulling this tremendous event together to better the quality of life for the citizens of this community." "We now have to continue to step up as a community to provide and take advantage of opportunities in employment because the resources that we once had are not there anymore," he continued.

Tennessee Department of labor will have the Career Coach on site for additional job seeking opportunities. Organizers advise that applicants should go online ahead of the fair and apply to the companies at the job fair. Once there, the applicant can let them know that they have recently applied to their company online.
