It's a common issue in the region, the state of Mississippi, and the entire country - employers simply cannot find the workforce that they need.
What if we told you there are over 5,000 job candidates entering our regional workforce annually? These candidates are active career seekers with infinite potential and we want to connect you with this incredible labor pool.
This talent summit is open exclusively to high school seniors from Pontotoc, Union, and Lee Counties as well as students from Itawamba and Northeast Mississippi Comunity Colleges. Connect is an excellent opportunity for your company to meet prospective employees who are energetic and brand new to the job market.
Any business that is actively hiring. We encourage companies from a variety of industries to participate including manufacturing, finance, health care, retail and more!
Connect is presented by the Community Development Foundation and you may register for a booth on the CDF Events page. CDF Members have a discounted rate for their booths. If you are interested in becoming a member of CDF, contact Amy Speck at 662-842-4521.
