Job fair

Job fair held Friday

Desiree Brooks of Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments chats with Miki Freeman (in orange), co-owner of the new Jersey Mike’s Subs franchise that’s coming to Henderson, during a job fair outside McGregor Hall organized by the council, the NCWorks Career Center and other groups. The Friday fair was meant to help job-seekers link up with prospective employers. Brooks said it was well-attended and drew participation from more than two dozen companies and organizations that are looking for workers.
