PINE BELT, Miss. (WDAM) - Calling all students!!!

The City of Hattiesburg annual summer student job fair is set for Tuesday.

The initiative by the city started in 2019 as a way to connect students ages 16 and older with local job opportunities.

The fair is scheduled for the Jackie Dole Sherill Community Center from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Hattiesburg Mayor Toby Barker said the event offered a way for high school students to gain experience in the workforce.

“We want our young people to use their summers in productive ways, earn a little money and learn some skills in the process is a good way of doing that,” Barker said. “So, I think we’ll have a lot of opportunities for young people who want to work this summer and we hope that everyone will come out next Tuesday.”
