Published 9:34 am Wednesday, June 1, 2022

Pearl River County residents who may be looking for a job or may be considering a career change will want to pay a visit to a job fair being held on June 6.

The job fair is being organized by the Greater Picayune Area Chamber of Commerce in response to a need the organization identified.

Executive Director Laci Lee said she and the Chamber’s Board of Directors noticed a number of local employers were having trouble filling empty positions. To help meet that need, efforts were made to reach out to local business owners and hiring managers within Pearl River County to see if they would be willing to participate in a job fair.
