Mississippi houses some of the world’s most respected industries. From engineering and manufacturing to medicine and I.T., many opportunities exist for “job hunters” across the state.
As the only show of its kind in Mississippi, Job Hunter introduces viewers to the jobs available right here at home. The series features interviews with CEOs, directors and workers at high profile companies around the state.
Viewers can also learn where they can acquire the skills they need to be competitive in these job markets. Courtney visits community colleges and universities that have programs for students interested in the jobs that are featured each week.
Job Hunteris made possible in part by funding from the state of Mississippi, the Mississippi Manufacturers Association’s (MMA) “Dream It. Do It.” campaign, and the Mississippi Department of Employment Security.
