Adams County Sheriff Travis Patten said Wednesday’s job fair is open to everyone — including those who are seeking educational or career opportunities, have a criminal record, have employment gaps, a disability, are homeless, are veterans who desire to re-enter the labor force and individuals lacking a high school diploma or GED.

“We’ve called it a reentry job fair, but it’s really for people who need a job period,” Patten said. “Come dressed to be hired and be prepared for on-the-spot interviews. When we’ve had this event in the past, people were hired right then and there.”

Lawyers will also be on-hand to start the expungement process, Patten said.

Organizer Jackie Posey said employers and representatives from resource corporations — such as Walmart, Magnolia Bluffs, South West Mississippi Planning and Development, Mississippi Department of Human Services, Governor’s Job Fair Network of Mississippi, Copiah Lincoln Community College and Alcorn State University would have booths set up for interested persons.

Attendees are encouraged to bring court dispositions, if any, and a copy of their ID and Social Security Card and resumes, Posey said.
