Invitation to Employers

Dear Employer:

We look forward to helping Upper Savannah organizations fill key vacancies at the September 27, Upper Savannah SC Works Job Fair which will be at the Greenwood Mall.

For the first time, we are collaborating with Piedmont Technical College. As a courtesy to our employers, the college will furnish up to two box lunches per registered employer. They are marketing the event to their current students and recent graduates who have sought after technical skills. We both are using the event to increase awareness of the doors that training can unlock.

We hope to see you there!  Please register on the form below by September 19. We considered the input of employers and streamlined the application. Rather than inquiring about all of your opportunities, we are asking for general information. If you have an online presence, please include the link so job seekers can learn more.

If you have been with us before you will know that, we have a few ground rules. First, no selling. The Greenwood Mall offers us space at no cost, on the stipulation that we not sell goods and services. The second is we cannot accommodate requests for electrical outlets. Wifi access may be available, but it not something the mall is obligated to provide.

The layout will be different this year. You will be assigned a zone, but you can pick your table from the space available in the zone. We need everyone to bring a tablecloth. The Job Fair will run from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.  Set-up time begins at 9:00 a.m. and should be completed by 9:45 a.m.

We do have limited space and we reserve the right to vet employers. If your organization is not registered with the Department of Employment and Workforce as an employer, we may need you to furnish additional information. In the event, we run out of space, preference will be given to those who:

  1. Register before the deadline
  2. Have a physical presence in the Upper Savannah region
  3. Have multiple jobs
  4. Offer apprenticeship or other training opportunities for workers.

Please register soon.

Ann Skinner

P.S.  We plan to run a marketing campaign prior to the job fair. If you would like to be featured, please send a photo to work@uppersavannah.com when you register.

The deadline to register for the Upper Savannah Regional Job Fair is 5:00p.m. on Tuesday, September 19, 2017.
