Job Hunting? Attend a Career Expo in Athens on Thursday

Veterans and other job seekers are invited to attend.

The Georgia Department of Labor and the Veterans of Foreign Wars will co-sponsor a career expo for veterans and other job seekers on Thursday.

The expo will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at VFW Post No. 2872 at 835 Sunset Drive, and more than 50 employers, educational institutions and resource agencies are set to participate.

“As more of our veterans end their terms of service, I want to ensure that we welcome them back home properly and that we acknowledge what they did for our country,” State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler said in a news release announcing the expo. “Although we are seeing signs of growth in the economy, it will still be awhile before we recover completely. The Georgia Department of Labor will continue to work hard, matching the unemployed with companies in a position to hire. This effort includes career expos, such as this one, that introduce veterans and potential employers.”

Applicants are advised to bring plenty of resumes and be prepared to fill out company applications and to interview for available job openings, including part-time, full-time, entry-level, supervisory and management positions.

For more information about the expo, contact the Athens Career Center at 706-583-2550.
