The coronavirus outbreak has left millions of people without a job. One local company wants to put South Mississippi back to work.
This afternoon, a drive thru job fair was held by Express Employment Professionals. The job fair allowed people to be placed with a job without ever leaving their cars.
Interviews were conducted from vehicles and the guidelines for social distancing set by the CDC were followed. Express Employment Professionals Owner Chad Purdy said, “Our phones are ringing off the hook with our associates and people looking for support. Very recently clients are starting to call back and say hey we are opening our doors soon and need some help. So, it is kind of the perfect storm and the perfect timing for us to do something like this in hopes of getting everything back on track.”
If you weren’t able to make it to the fair today you can contact Express Employment Professionals directly at 228-868-5447.
