State Representative Mike Sparks (R–Smyrna) announced that he has partnered with the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development to host a job fair for the people of Rutherford County and surrounding areas.
The fair, which will include approximately 50 local employers looking to hire, is scheduled for September 18th at the Parkway Baptist Church in Smyrna from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Job seekers who participate in the fair are automatically placed on the Department of Labor’s Management Activity Tracking System (eCMATS). The eCMATS system assists job seekers with workforce training, job services, and job referrals through the Department’s Workforce Development Career Centers.
“I am truly excited to help coordinate this job fair and am grateful to all of the wonderful organizations and employers who have agreed to come together for the good of our community,” said Representative Mike Sparks. “This event will help those who are currently unemployed find work and I encourage as many people as possible to attend.”
Interested job-seekers are not required to RSVP for this event. Formal resumes and other job experience paperwork are strongly encouraged.
“With the unemployment rate of Tennessee at 8.5% and higher than the national average, I hope this job fair encourages those looking for work to come out and apply for the dozens of jobs that are currently available right here at home.”
