ALABASTER – 58 INC, Shelby County’s Economic Development Corporation, Alabama Career Center of Alabaster and Shelby County Chamber are collaborating on a job fair scheduled for July 20.

“Through our ongoing business contact visits in conjunction with the Chamber, we have had many conversations with companies regarding employment challenges,” said Melody Whitten, vice president of 58 INC. “We also received requests from local high schools to help connect senior graduates with employment opportunities throughout the county, so we determined that this was an appropriate effort that we should undertake.

The Shelby County Career Fair, to be held Wednesday, July 20 from 2-6 p.m. at Thompson High School (1921 Warrior Parkway) in Alabaster, will provide job seekers and employers across the county with Shelby the opportunity to connect.

“We strive to help Shelby County businesses hire skilled labor,” said Kirk Mancer of the Shelby County Chamber. “It is a collaborative effort that 58 INC and the Chamber have continued to prioritize. Partnering on this event with the Career Center is another way we continue our efforts to connect Shelby County employers with potential candidates.

There is no cost to employers or job seekers to participate in this job fair. Business registration is mandatory and is limited only to businesses hiring permanent full-time positions. To register for the job fair, companies should contact 58 INC or the Shelby County Chamber for a link to the registration form.

“As individuals and families grapple with the rising cost of living, we encourage recent high school graduates and experienced workers to take advantage of this opportunity to discover and meet those offering permanent, full-time jobs near home,” said Amy Sturdivant, president of 58 inc.

Job seekers do not need to register for the event, however, they should plan to bring resumes and other documents to support their job search. Full-time job seekers of all ages are welcome to explore the excellent job opportunities with Shelby County businesses.
