The S.C. Employment Security Commission, along with The State Media Co., today will host the annual Employment Expo at the State Fairgrounds in Columbia.
The expo will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Cantey Building. Employers scheduled include Verizon, Avon, The Home Depot and the city of Columbia.
The S.C. Small Business Administration will lead two workshops, "How to Start Your Own Business," at 11 a.m., and "Financial Opportunities for Starting a Small Business," at 2 p.m.
The job fair traditionally draws thousands of job seekers from around the state. In December last year, the expo attracted about 3,700 people.
