The Chickasaw Nation will host the Ada Area Hiring Event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the Pontotoc County Agri-Plex, 1710 N. Broadway, Ada.

“It feels good resuming the Ada hiring event,” Valerie Johnson, career advocacy senior manager at the Chickasaw Nation, said. “The Ada hiring event has nearly a 15-year history. Because of COVID-19 in-person restrictions, the last event took place in 2018.”

The Ada Area Hiring Event helps connect talented individuals with a wide variety of career opportunities in the Chickasaw Nation and several area organizations and businesses in Pontotoc County and surrounding areas.

Chickasaw Nation job-related programs and human resources recruiters will be conducting interviews and hiring on-site for current Chickasaw Nation career opportunities.

“In addition to the Chickasaw Nation, numerous Ada employers will be present,” Johnson said. “Mercy Hospital, Rolling Hills, Seth Wadley, Flex N Gate, Walmart, Ada City Schools, The Clinic, Big Five and McCall’s Chapel are a few of the other employers scheduled to be hiring at the event. Many career fields are available to job seekers, with every skill level represented.”

Employers will be looking for workers with varying experience in a wide variety of fields. These fields include positions in communications, health care, finance, retail, transportation, customer service, distribution, mechanical, food services, construction, manufacturing, education, industrial maintenance and more.

This event is open to the public at no charge. Hot dogs will be provided. Participants are encouraged to dress for success. On-site interviews will take place.
