Job seekers may visit the La Vergne Public Library on Wednesday, July 22 from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. for a Career-Family Resources Day.
Hosted by TN-ZERO Family Resource and Information, 25 service organizations will be available to answer questions and provide assistance. "The Career-Family Resources Day was organized to bring resources and notifications of jobs to the community so that people can have a one-stop venue to find what they need, whether it's jobs or other resources," said Kathy Hines, chief executive officer of TN-Zero.
People who are unemployed or under-employed will find help available to create resumes and to register with Jobs4TN.gov which has more than 90,000 jobs listed through the Career Coach of the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
"In addition to the Career Coach, representatives from the Legal Aid Society, the Interfaith Dental Clinic, Goodwill Career Center, and many more will be on-hand," said Library Director Donna Bebout. "Information will also be available for people who are interested in obtaining a high school equivalency diploma or other training opportunities."
Mayor Dennis Waldron encourages job seekers to take advantage of the event, "There are thousands of jobs now available in Rutherford County and this job fair will help connect employers with potential workers. The Career Coach is a great resource our citizens."
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs also will be located outside the library for job placement for veterans, as well as Highway for Heroes mobile unit that located jobs for veterans with a CDL license or qualified to obtain a CDL.
