Gigantic Job Fair Set For Macon This Month

Middle Georgia residents (or those looking to relocate to the area) need to attend a major recruiting event Nov. 14th in Macon.

The event will take place between 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at Building H on the Macon campus of Central Georgia Technical College at 3300 Macon Tech Drive.

The best thing about this recruiting event is it’s not just a job fair—though it’s that, too—but it’s also going to let attendees know about the many job-training programs available to them.

The Georgia Department of Labor and the workforce division of the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Middle Georgia Consortium, and the Middle Georgia Regional Commission co-sponsoring this event.

Per the Macon Telegraph, some of the employers expected to participate are Aspen Products, Blue Bird Bus Co. and Georgia Artisan, also known as Georgia Pallet. The companies are recruiting for a wide variety of jobs, including carpenters, painters, mechanics, body-repair technicians, machine operators, manufacturing assembly-line workers and personnel to pack boxes of manufactured goods for distribution.

The Department Of Labor staff and other co-sponsors will discuss job training programs, including on-the-job training with the job seekers. Also, the state labor department will provide employment-related services to job seekers attending the event.
