Jeff Wood, Craven County Economic Development Director, said, “In light of the pandemic, people are rethinking big-city life and want to get back to a more relaxed way of living without giving up successful careers. Making a move to Craven County allows people to have both.”

He said the county is seeing a strong economic shift “that offers competitive jobs in an environment we can all appreciate. Craven County offers so many unique opportunities from the water to the woods and we also have a strong professional and industrial job market.”

The NCWorks Career Center-New Bern is spearheading the event, in partnership with Craven Works Job Fair Planning Committee.

Craven 100 Alliance and the City of New Bern Parks & Recreation Department are sponsors of the event.
