The 4th Annual Job Fair & Community Outreach

The 4th annual Job Fair & Community Outreach was held on Thursday, September 21, 2023 at Brown Missionary Baptist Church, Southaven, MS. The Psi Mu Mu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., in collaboration with the Act’s Career Center, hosted the event.  ACTS Career is a non-profit career development and resource center, and a Ministry of Brown Missionary Baptist Church Main Campus located at 880 Stateline Road East Annex Building in Southaven Mississippi.  The job fair was a chance for job seekers to step out from behind their computer screens and make an impression. Even if attending a job fair does not convert into an instant job offer, meeting and making an impression with an employer is invaluable.
