Mississippi Public Broadcasting’s new “Job Hunter” TV show on manufacturing jobs and workforce development in Mississippi airs tomorrow at 7 p.m.!

See Dec. 26, 2010, MBJ story: “On the hunt.”

(Crews got busy filming this fall, as covered by MBJ-TV.)

Despite the economic downturn, there are job openings in Mississippi, and many are in the manufacturing sector where skilled labor is in demand.

Mississippi Public Broadcasting’s new TV show “Job Hunter,” which airs Jan. 6 will educate viewers about Mississippi’s major manufacturing sectors – such as automotive, aerospace, heavy metal, unique manufacturing and plastics – and the workforce development programs that can help them land jobs.

“Job Hunter” host Kerri Courtney will take viewers behind the scenes in high-tech industries from North Mississippi all the way to the Gulf Coast, featuring employers such as Systems Electro Coating, Eaton Aerospace, Caterpillar, Severstal and Precision Optics. Mississippi State University’s Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems and workforce development programs at several community colleges will be highlighted.

    He doesn’t even know what “paleo” refers to. He probably never heard of evolution. He just repeats, repeats, repeats the same garbage. Over and over again. Humans have been eating meat for hundreds of thousands of years. Of course Harley has never heard of anthropology, archeology, science or any of that. They didn’t cover that in the 2nd grade…..
