NAACP Hosting a Job Fair March 30th

The Oak Ridge-Anderson County NAACP invites businesses to participate in a neighborhood job fair 4-6:30 p.m. March 30, at the Scarboro Community Center, 148 Carver Ave., Oak Ridge. The job fair will serve as a recruitment and hiring tool for employers seeking to fill job vacancies, according to a news release.

National employment statistics look pretty good these days. But those numbers don’t reflect the concern of those, and there are many who are having difficulty finding a good job,” stated the release.

“Long-term unemployment can be devastating both financially and emotionally,” said Bill Moore, chair of the Economic Development Committee of the local NAACP branch. “It is our hope that this community job fair can make life better for families, neighbors, and the community. With a little help from area businesses and others within our community, we can do something about unemployment,”
