In 2016, the job fairs were able to help 200+ job seekers obtain jobs. We’re proud to help our local communities grow and thrive by connecting job-seekers with open positions” said C.L.I.M.B. program coordinator and co-founder, Amber Covington.

Companies such as FedEx Express, Homecare By Wesley, Verizon Wireless, Regions, Aerotek, Methodist Healthcare, and many more employers will be in attendance covering various career fields. A full list of employers will be released by Monday, April 17, 2017.

C.L.I.M.B will host various workshops in March and April to prepare job seekers for the job fair.
