ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia Department of Labor is sponsoring a career expo and job fair featuring more than 100 employers.
The event is from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday at the World Congress Center. Besides employers with jobs to fill, the event will feature approximately 100 resource and service providers.
Those will include several two-and-four-year public and private educational institutions and technical colleges.
Workshops will address how to make career decisions and how to better handle personal finances after a job loss.
Commissioner Michael L. Thurmond says the event will lay the foundation for the return of economic growth in the state. It's free, but attendees are asked to bring canned food to donate to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
