The Region 8 Employment Expo

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Region 8 Employment Expo took place on Thursday at the Mall at Turtle Creek.

Employers and potential employees came together to discuss future opportunities.

Sammy Dortch of Batesville said he found the information very helpful.

“I like it, it's very nice. They did a great job. I got a lot of information and a lot of places I think I can go to help find a better paying job.”

Representatives from 12 businesses were set up, explaining the companies they worked for and what job opportunities were available.

Lanae Word, a HR representative from NEA Baptist said, “Actually, we get to promote the hospital and let the public know what our needs are as far as employment needs are and what those positions are. And so, I think it's very beneficial not only to the hospital, but definitely to the community.”

The Expo took place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
