This morning over 30 local businesses came together at the Biloxi Civic Center to take part in the South Mississippi EmployAbility Job Fair.
This job fair is designed for individuals with disabilities and is hosted by the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services, the Governor’s Job Fair Network, the Mississippi Department of Employment Security and the Win Job Center.
Seventeen-year-old Megan Gresham stopped by the job fair on a mission to find a job despite her disability. “I am trying to find a job, but my disability that I have in my legs. It’s kind of hard to find a job because some of the jobs I think they are looking at my disability and thinking I can’t do anything, but I really can. They help find jobs and hopefully that will work out so I can help my family out with bills and stuff like that and food and stuff like that.”
