Background-friendly job fair at Marion County church

A local church is hosting a second chance, background-friendly job fair for those who have faced barriers to employment in the past.

Better Together, a nonprofit organization, will host the Second Chances job fair on Thursday, April 18, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at BreadBreakers Church, which is located at 7325 E Highway 25 in Belleview.

The hiring event is being held for job seekers who are facing barriers to their employment, such as homelessness, previous incarceration, a lack of reliable childcare or transportation, or employment gaps on a resume due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The fair will feature employers from Marion County who are prepared to interview candidates face-to-face and offer jobs on the spot.

Additionally, a collection of free resources will be available at the fair for all job seekers including one-on-one job coaching sessions to review resumes and interview skills.
