Congresswoman Terri Sewell’s (D-AL07) job fair is being held this year in Bessemer on Tuesday, Nov. 9.

“Since coming to Congress, I have been committed to providing greater economic opportunities to all of my constituents,” Sewell  said. “For many, that begins with the dignity of a good job. That's why my annual Job Fair is one of the most important events we host all year.”

The event will be held at the Bessemer Civic Center from 10 AM to 2 PM, and will include area employers, including automotive, restaurant and food management, transportation and construction, hospitality and retail, utilities and telecommunications, manufacturing and production, staffing agencies, government agencies, and law enforcement. 

Sewell encourages participants to "dress professionally with resumes in hand and a confident mindset" and adds “Please note that due to the ongoing threat of the pandemic, COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place and masks must be worn during the entirety of the event. Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 24 hours of entry is strongly encouraged. Pre-registration is encouraged but not required. On-site registration will be available.”
