MDES accepts 10,000th Toyota application

By Miss. Department of Employment Security

Days after opening its online system to Toyota job seekers, the Mississippi Department of Employment Security has accepted it 10,000th application.

More than 8,700 Mississippians have applied.

Applications have poured in from 80 counties across the state and from 36 states across the country.

“The high number of applicants from across the state and country demonstrates that our electronic system provides a convenient way for everyone to apply for Toyota jobs,” MDES Executive Director Les Range said.

“We are very pleased with the progress and are encouraging everyone who is interested in helping build the Toyota Corolla, one of the world’s most popular cars, to apply for a job through our website,” Range said.

Job seekers can connect to the online application system at www.mdes.ms.gov. Part of an effort to help Toyota fill 1,350 production and maintenance jobs, the system accepts applications 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The system is accessible from any Internet-ready computer – at home, at a friend’s home, at public libraries or from one of the more than 50 WIN Job Centers across the state.
