HANCEVILLE, Ala. — An upcoming job fair at Wallace State Community College is shaping up as an event that will offer students and community members a chance to check into employment in a number of different areas.

So far, almost a dozen area employers have signed up to attend the job fair. The companies have jobs available in Cullman, Birmingham, Falkville, Decatur, Madison, Guntersville and Huntsville. The jobs range from part-time to seasonal to full-time employment. The job fair will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Oct. 5, in the lobby of the Bailey Center.

“We know that area businesses are usually looking for extra employees this time of year as the holidays approach, and others are always in the market to hire new staff members,” said LaDonna Allen, Alumni and Special Projects Coordinator for the Wallace State Alumni Association, which is sponsoring the event. “We also know that some of our students may be looking to find a part-time job or possibly to get their foot in the door of a business at which they may want to work in the future.”

Along with Wallace State students, members of the community are welcome to attend the job fair. It is suggested to bring a resume and dress appropriately, as some of the employers may opt to hold interviews that day.

Employers who have registered for the job fair to date include:

  • Huntsville Hospital: ER Techs and Patient Care Aides
  • Maurice’s: Retail sales in all North Alabama stores
  • Falkville Health and Rehab: CNA’s and Nurses (LPN and RN)
