Ride Across Tennessee Job Fair
Bolivar, TN. (WNBJ)-
The American Job Center kicked off their Ride Across Tennessee Job Fair today. They are hosting these events in support of our Veterans' Advantage: Cycle Across TN. Mason Mcpeak (American Job Center Local Veterans’ Employment Representative) stated, “our goal is to highlight the awareness of veterans in the workplace. We’re boosting the hiring of veterans at each american job center.”
The cyclists started their ride in Memphis and will finish their commute in Kingsport,TN. April 5-7 they will be making stops in Bolivar, Jackson, and Lexington, Tennessee. The American Job Center will host job fairs at each stop. Ariel Mcgahey (American Job Center Southwest TN One Stop Operator) informed us, “the riders should be getting in between 11:30 and 12. We’ll have a job fair that kicks off at 1 pm and we’ll have employers at our location from 1 until 4. We’ll also have free resume workshops starting at 11am tomorrow.”
With the recent worker shortage, representatives at The American Job Center want to connect employers to residents who are ready to work. Mason Mcpeak (American Job Center Local Veterans’ Employment Representative) explained, “the job market is vast, but we can create a foothold for individuals that would otherwise need that assistance.”
From resume reviews to dress attire ariel the southwest one stop operator says they hope once residents leave their events, they feel prepared to take on that interview. Ariel Mcgahey (American Job Center Southwest Tn One Stop Operator) stated, “there are American Job Centers in every county in Tennessee. We provide education and employment services for anyone in Tennessee.”
The next stop on the Ride Across Tennessee Job Fair is tomorrow in Jackson, tn. At the American Job Center office located at 1124 Whitehall Street.
