The Charleston Metro Chamber hosted a Tri-County Career Fair and Hiring Event on March 15 and 16 at the North Charleston Athletic Complex. The event included thousands of high school and middle school students from Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties, along with veterans. Veterans and high school students were able to get in front of potential career opportunities, while middle school students learned what opportunities are available to them in the region.

“Our goal was to give veterans and high school students the opportunity to connect with regional organizations that are looking for high quality talent, while also introducing middle school students to phenomenal career opportunities,” said Darryl Brown, Director of Emerging Workforce & Trident Regional Career Specialist with the Charleston Metro Chamber. “Our valuable connections with regional partners and school districts helped make this event possible and we look forward to continuing our work together to close the region’s talent gap.”
