The Shelby County Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Shelby County Industrial and Development Foundation, Associated Industries and Workforce Development to create a new virtual job fair! The virtual job fair will allow all Shelby County organizations to come together as one in hopes of finding potential candidates to fill any open positions available in our county. This will entail the creation of individual videos describing your open job opportunities that you may have available and need assistance in filling. Once all videos have been submitted and complied, they will be promoted on social media outlets for many different entities, shared with our school system, and seeking to be able to promote them around Shelby County as well to gather more attention.
Here is what we need from you!
- Your organization name
- Your name and position
- Contact information
- Job description
- How to apply
- Starting pay, incentives, benefits, etc.
For the video you will need to create roughly a 1 minute video per position you have available describing the above information given. May we suggest for the video to be taken either in front of your organizations building or logo (this will help with easy recognition). While these videos will need to be short, they should enticingly describe the positions needing filled and why the applicant should apply for your opening. Lastly, keep in mind the audience will be of varied ages, backgrounds, education and abilities.
A simple script you may follow:
Hi, my name is ___________ with _(organization name)___. We are currently seeking an individual for __(job title)___. This position entails __(quick, short, job description)___. The qualifications for this position are ________. Our organization offers many great benefits such as __(vacation, paid time off, sick leave, insurance, etc.)___.

If you are interested and would like to know more, you can visit __(organization website, location, phone, etc.) ____ or apply __(how to apply, most important part!)___. Thank you and we look forward to receiving your application soon.
Please don’t forget, if you have multiple job openings to create an individual video for each of them.
