Chattanooga, TN – The Chattanooga Public Library has joined forces with Unum, a leading provider of employee benefits and income protection, to organize a job fair aimed at connecting job seekers with local area businesses. The event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 3rd, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the library’s downtown location.

The job fair, an initiative focused on enhancing employment prospects and empowering the community, will showcase numerous employers actively seeking new talent. Notably, the City of Chattanooga, Orange Grove Center, Signal Centers, and Open Arms Care are among the participating organizations offering diverse job opportunities.

To support job seekers in their pursuit of professional success, the event will feature a unique service—a free interview “clothes store.” Recognizing the challenges some individuals face in accessing appropriate attire for job interviews, the organizers have taken a thoughtful step to eliminate this barrier. Attendees who require a professional outfit will have the opportunity to browse and select clothing items suitable for interviews, all at no cost.

The partnership between the Chattanooga Public Library and Unum reflects a shared commitment to foster economic growth and promote inclusivity within the community. By bringing together local businesses actively hiring with individuals seeking employment, the job fair aims to facilitate meaningful connections that can lead to fruitful careers.

Job seekers are encouraged to bring copies of their resumes and be prepared for potential on-the-spot interviews. This event offers a valuable chance for individuals of all backgrounds and experience levels to explore job opportunities, network with employers, and receive career guidance.

The Chattanooga Public Library and Unum are proud to provide this platform for the local community, supporting economic growth and empowering individuals in their quest for professional advancement. The job fair promises to be an essential step towards building a prosperous future for both job seekers and the Chattanooga area as a whole.
