I don't specifically, but I know that the unemployment rates for March were 9.9% in Oktibbeha County according to the Commercial Dispatch. It's not a good time to look for work in MS, in general. The universities and public schools have had funding cut, and the private sector does fair much better, I'm afraid.

Maybe you can check the Employment Classifieds (http://www.starkvilledailynews.com/component/option,com_wrapper/Itemid,117/ - broken link) in the Starkville Daily News.

Good luck.

PACCAR Engine Company's $400 million engine manufacturing and technology facility in Columbus, Mississippi will begin production in late 2010. The 12.9L engines produced at the Mississippi plant will be PACCAR Engine Company's most fuel-efficient and highest-technology diesel engines. PACCAR Engine Company is excited about this superb site and the opportunities it provides to PACCAR Engine Company, our customers, dealers, supplier partners and the people of the State of Mississippi.
Severstall is a huge steel plant also located by the Columbus-Starkville airport owned by Russians; it was one of the largest economic development projects in the Southeast a year or two ago.
For other major employers, you should check the Starkville economic development website and the Columbus-Lowndnes County Link, the economic development website for Columbus. They list all the major employers in the area.
