GILBERTOWN, Ala. (WTOK) - Employers and job seekers alike shared in the benefit of an employment education event in Choctaw County Wednesday.

Coastal Alabama Community College's Gilbertown campus hosted Grill & Chill, a community work education barbecue.

Employers were able to learn about on-the-job training programs and apprenticeships. Job seekers could get help with job searches, resumes, and interviewing.

"Today is a great day in Gilbertown. It's the first time we've ever had a community awareness event to sort of tout and expose all of the different resources from the Alabama Career Center and other partner agencies," said Alabama Secretary of Labor Fitzgerald Washington.

Washington says if you missed to barbecue Wednesday, you may visit the career center at Coastal Alabama Community College in Gilbertown every Wednesday,between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
