The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System, in partnership with the Clarksville-Montgomery County Industrial Development Board, will host the annual Senior Hiring Event on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center. Students interested in participating must have their parent/guardian permission slip returned to their school counselor by Friday, April 21.
The Hiring Event will showcase jobs currently available in the Clarksville-Montgomery County community to CMCSS seniors graduating as part of the Class of 2023. Each year, the event introduces quality candidates to local business and industry leaders. Recent graduates are often an underutilized pool of candidates for recruitment efforts.
The event will run from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m., with schools visiting at scheduled times throughout the day. Human Resource personnel from each participating business will share available position overviews, salary and benefit information, as well as application and hiring protocols. Students will receive information on company culture, work environment, skills, and training opportunities.
The following businesses have been confirmed as participants in the event, and each will have at least five full-time, entry-level positions available at the time of the event. Participating companies include:
- Montgomery County Government
- Byard Construction
- United Rentals
- LG Electronics
- City of Clarksville
- NCI Drilling
- OEM Tube
- Montgomery County Sheriff’s Dept.
- Clarksville-Montgomery County School System
- TN Dept. of Corrections
If students meet position requirements, and complete the application and interview processes of individual companies following the event, they have the potential to cross the high school graduation stage and walk directly into full-time employment opportunities in June.
