On Wednesday, May 25th, the Johnson City Public Library will host a job fair for Mountain States Health Alliance’s Project Employment Hope. Project Employment Hope is an employment assistance program for individuals who are chronically unemployed, underemployed, disabled, living below the poverty line, or homeless. Part-time and full-time positions, along with employment counseling, guidance, and training, are available for anyone who qualifies. From 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the JCPL Computer Center, MSHA representatives will be on-hand to help determine eligibility and assist with the job application process. Job applicants must have a working e-mail account to submit an application, and the library offers computer tutoring by appointment for patrons who need assistance getting started with e-mail. If you are interested in attending this event, we request that you register by calling the library at 423-434-4454. Click here to learn more about Project Employment Hope and to apply online.
