Atmore's job fair draws about 150

Reynolds spearheads new job opportunites through outsourcing group; can still apply

County Commissioner Karean Reynolds partnered with Atlas Industrial Outsourcing to hold a community job fair at the Atmore City Hall on Monday at 5 pm.

Atlas Industrial is a job outsourcing agency based out of Mobile that provides qualified workers to industrial plants and manufacturing facilities. Atlas Industrial currently has positions available for Industrial Cleaning Technicians (Hydro Blasting). About 150 individuals from the Atmore area participated in this event. Applicants will be screened by Atlas staff.

Selected applicants will be trained and provided certifications that will enable them to work at various facilities. Commissioner Reynolds and Atlas Industrial has agreed to provide the specialized training in the Atmore area to accommodate the large number of applicants. This event was held because Commissioner Reynolds and Atlas Industrial both believe in creating opportunities for areas with limited resources.

“I believe this event was a success because it demonstrated that the Atmore community has a large available workforce that's willing to step up and take advantage of opportunities when they are available,” Reynolds said.
