The annual AOD Community Career Fair targets jobseekers without degrees and connects them with local employers, educational institutions, and nonprofits. Our third annual career fair was Wednesday March 18, 2015 at the Jaycee Fairgrounds building in Huntsville, AL. We appreciate all who helped plan, conduct, and spread the word about the event! Results:
Attendees: 251 jobseekers, 46 employers, 10 schools, and 6 nonprofits including the Gideons who were there passing out bibles.
