MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.—The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce (MBACC) continues its efforts to assist area businesses fill job openings with two upcoming events.
On Tuesday, May 18, 2021, MBACC teams up with the Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association (MBAHA) and Horry Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) to host the Spring 2021 Job Fair at HGTC’s Conway Campus.
The fair will be open to students from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and the public from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Employers will be set up outside within the campus’ overflow parking lot located between U.S. Hwy. 501 and Victory Lane.
“We’re expecting a large turnout for the Spring 2021 Job Fair, both in terms of employers seeking employees and those who need employment. As a result, we have asked that all participating businesses be willing to interview, and possibly hire, job seekers on the spot,” said Karen Riordan, MBACC president and CEO.
On the following day, Wednesday, May 19, MBACC will host a webinar titled, “Apprenticeships - A Unique Opportunity to Grow Your Workforce.” The free online event runs from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and will share a presentation on the value of offering apprenticeships by Julie Golden, HGTC Training and Development director.
“Apprenticeships are a win/win for both businesses and those who want on-the-job training. Businesses not only receive a state tax credit but set themselves up for success by training future employees. Meanwhile, apprentices have an opportunity to earn an income while they develop occupation and life skills,” Riordan said.
The chamber also provides a free online job board where businesses can post openings and job seekers can look for available positions.
Sponsorship provides our investors the opportunity for recognition and publicity. For some events, sponsorship will also include tickets to the event, the opportunity to speak to attendees or to distribute promotional items.
