Goodwill to host first-ever simultaneous job fairs at N. Ga. centers
UNDATED – In a first-of-its-kind event, Goodwill of North Georgia will hold a simultaneous job fair at each of its eight career centers on Wednesday, February 6. Employers are scheduled to be on-site at each location recruiting workers for professional, warehouse and retail positions.
"Each of our career centers holds regular job fairs, but this is the first time we’ve combined our efforts to create a single-day impact," said Elaine Armstrong, director of public relations. Goodwill has career centers in Athens, Atlanta, Decatur, Duluth, Cartersville, Oakwood, Rome and Woodstock.
Most locations will host a job fair from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. The Cartersville event will end at noon.
The nonprofit, known for its donation centers and stores, uses the money from its donated goods program to fund its career centers and employment services.
Equipped with computers, résumé-writing tools, local job postings, photocopiers, telephones and other resources, Goodwill career centers are free and open to the public. Goodwill also provides recruitment fair space, interview rooms and other services for local employers.
"We know many people start the year looking for new job opportunities. This one-day event will allow us to help them connect with employers, while highlighting the myriad of resources each location offers every day," Armstrong said.
Armstrong recommended that job fair attendees arrive in professional interview attire and bring several copies of their résumés.
