These Job Fairs Can Help You Begin The New Year With A New Job

We highlight a lot of job fairs around the state, mainly because they’re such a great way to meet people looking for talent. There’s no better time to start a new job than right now, at the beginning of a new year.

That’s why Goodwill stores all across Georgia are hosting job fairs all next week. In total there will be 13 job fair locations, each with a diverse group of employers in attendance.

It’s not mandatory, but I would highly recommend pre-registering at Goodwill’s Career Connector site, which can help build a resume and has other career development tools.

Once you’ve pre-registered, check out the list below for the time and location of the 13 job fairs to find the one that best fits your schedule. 

Remember, job fairs are very similar to interviews. Come prepared, well dressed, and loaded with hard copies of your resume. This will be the first time hiring authorities see you, so remember to make a great first impression. And with that, here’s the information you need. Good luck!
