Served time and looking for a job? Local fair offering assistance

Job Fair May 11

It’s no secret that people who are released after serving their time in jail or prison have a long, complicated road ahead. One of their biggest obstacles? Finding steady work.

But the Tuscaloosa County District Attorney’s Office is teaming up with local schools and agencies so an under-served population has the tools they need for success.

Shelton State Community College, Skilled Trades of West Alabama and West AlabamaWorks representatives will be stationed at the McDonald Hughes Community Center Thursday, May 11, from 1 to 5 p.m. for a job fair and hiring event.

The community center is located at 3101 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. in Tuscaloosa.

This event is free and open to the public, but residents who have served time in jail or prison are encouraged to attend.

Some potential career paths available through these programs include:

  • Construction
  • Electrical work
  • HVAC
  • Plumbing
  • Truck driving
