The 6th Annual Summer Job Fair will be held on Monday, June 3 in downtown Hattiesburg at the Jackie Dole Community Center.

The Summer Job Fair is the largest job fair in the State of MS, attracting lots of businesses and 1,000's of participants each year. The HMG Summer Job Fair is different than most job fairs as it features lots of employers offering 1,000's of jobs to the community every year with a stipulation, you must be able to hire on the spot.

The job fair each year also feeds all participants for free, offering a hot meal since most people are coming during lunch time. It has become a cornerstone not only in the Pine Belt, but also in Mississippi as employers from all over have come to participate including Ingalls Ship Yard and other off-shore jobs.

Participants can come to the job fair and literally change their life. There are several on-site training programs available as well so that those with no experience can also participate. The Summer Job Fair is one of the biggest events of the year.
