Congressman David Scott has been hosting a job fair in his district for more than a decade. This year will mark the 15th year of hosting and it will take place April 13 at the Georgia International Convention Center from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. More than 90 businesses and/or organizations are already confirmed to attend.
Before we get to the list of which businesses will be on hand, don’t forget to come prepared for the job interviews that will take place. Yes, I said interviews, because whether they’re informal or not, a job fair is a day full of little interviews.

Here are some helpful tips for all job fairs:
- Dress for success. Men, wear a suit and tie if you can. If not wear khakis and a collared shirt. Ladies, wear a suit if you can, too. If not, church or business attire is a smart choice. You might feel overdressed at times, but it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. Trust me.
- Come prepared to explain your work history, what excites you, and what you want out of the job fair itself. People are going to ask about all of that, so you should think about what your answers would be before you get there.
- Have plenty of copies of your resume on hand. If you need help writing a resume, check out this link for helpful tips and template ideas. A nice, clean resume will add to your appeal as a candidate.
- Be positive! You’re going to meet with people who will do nothing all day but talk to people. They’re going to remember you more if you come in positive, with a smile on your face, and bring excitement to your conversations.
- Cast a wide net. Make sure to speak with as many business representatives as you can. Even if the jobs available aren’t your cup of tea, that doesn’t mean they’re the only jobs that will be open at the business in the future.
