Upstate Fatherhood hosts job fair, 9 find employment
Nine people found new jobs at the job fair hosted by Upstate Fatherhood Coalition at the Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center in Greenville on Oct. 28.
There were 21 community partners and potential employers on hand for the event, including SC Works, Goodwill Industries, Spartan Staffing, RL Enterprise and Associates, Bi-Lo, Confluence Watersports, Home Depot and Verizon Wireless.
The turnout of job-seekers wasn't as great as hoped. Only about 27 came, half of them fathers in the Upstate program. But of those, a third found jobs, and still hold them!
A committee has been formed to work on having a bigger turnout for the next job fair, in February. We hope to see you there!
