Cherokee Career Expo

There is something to be said about working in your home community. The sense of ownership that comes with living, working and enjoying the quality of life your town or county provides is empowering. As a job search begins, many people don’t know how to find work locally. They don’t realize that the positions they are looking for can be found a few miles away from home, and that is where the Cherokee Career Expo provides opportunity.  The vast majority of attendees are Cherokee County residents, all with different stories and reasons for being here.
