SPARTANBURG, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Looking to start a new career? Spartanburg County officials say they have plenty of opportunities.

The second county-wide job fair is happening today at the Cleveland Park Event Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We checked the online postings and found the county has more than 70 positions currently open.

County spokesperson Scottie Kay Blackwell said they encourage job applicants to dress professionally and bring a resume.

Many departments will be on-site, including the Sheriff’s Office, Detention Center, 911, Parks & Recreation, Assessor’s Office, Solicitor’s Office, Roads & Bridges, Solid Waste and Facilities Maintenance.

This time, Blackwell said, they will have laptops available so attendees can apply for jobs at the event.

Mendi Just, now a detention facility deputy, got hired at the first job fair in December. She said she was hesitant to apply for the job at first, but talking with the recruiters in-person at the fair convinced her it was the right choice.

“Now’s your chance,” Just said. “We have such a huge shortage right now. We are looking for not only good officers, but officers with great integrity. You have to have that in order to make this career succeed.”
