Alcorn’s Office of Human Resources to host Career Fair on Lorman campus

Job seekers in surrounding areas will get an opportunity to embark on a career at Alcorn State University during its upcoming job fair.

Alcorn’s Office of Human Resources will host a Career Fair Wednesday, Nov. 10, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Davey L. Whitney HPER Complex. The event’s theme is “Dare to…Launch your Career Here.” The University hopes to pair qualified and engaged candidates with an array of essential staff positions geared toward serving Alcorn’s students and the community.

Dr. Wanda Fleming, assistant vice president for human resources, hopes to expand the University’s workforce by launching long-lasting careers.

“We recognize that there are many individuals in the surrounding areas seeking employment,” said Fleming. “This career fair provides the perfect opportunity for them to meet and talk directly with managers of hiring departments across the University, share resumes, and, in some instances, participate in informal interviews. At the same time, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful campus and institutional hospitality.”

Fleming said that the office expects to host a faculty career fair during the Spring 2022 semester as part of the University’s ongoing efforts to share employment opportunities with the community.
