The South Carolina Employment Security Commission will be hosting a job forum at Florence-Darlington Technical College this Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. According to Tra Thomas of the ESC, there are thousands of jobs across the state in the government and private sector to be filled. She says this is an opportunity for individuals seeking employment to receive some assistance in their job search.
“We’re giving people an opportunity to come, look through the thousands of jobs that are available and at that point, they will be able to give those selections to a job counselor,” said Thomas. “The job counselor in turn wil go over their job qualifications and go over the job requirements and then send them out on job referrals for job interviews.”
Thomas says the ESC serves to help South Carolinians find employment. She says, “So all of these programs and services are available at the Employment Security Commission and they’re free of charge.
“We want more and more people to know that the ESC is here for them and much more than their unemployment check. We are not the Unemployment Office, we’re the Employment Office and we’re trying to help people to get back to work.”
