In September, in efforts to fill more than 30 junior soil evaluator positions at the agency, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) held seven hiring events around the state and shared a video on Facebook. Information on the hiring events also linked to a YouTube video about the work.
The media blitz attracted 128 applicants. At the hiring events, staff interviewed interested applicants for the position of junior soil evaluator. As of mid-October a total of 18 conditional and permanent job offers had been extended.
