Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) is hosting his 2009 Career Expo - a re-entering the workforce job fair on Thursday, May 28, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at DeKalb Technical College, 495 North Indian Creek in Clarkston.

More than 35 representatives from federal and local agencies and private industries will be filling hundreds of available positions.

There also will be counselors on hand to help with résumé writing and give tips on how to start a small business and how to do business with local governments.

"Because of the continuing recession, many residents I've spoken with recently have either lost their jobs, have a family member who lost his or her job or know someone who is out of work," said Johnson. "While Recovery Act funds flowing into the District will provide some relief, I've decided to hold my 2009 Career Expo as soon as possible."

Economic indicators show encouraging signs that the economy is beginning to turn around, but Johnson said now is not the time to sit idly by while residents of his District are struggling.

Participating businesses and agencies include - but are not limited to - AT&T, Gwinnett County Police Department, the Department of Homeland Security, EPA, DeKalb County Sheriff's Office, U.S. Census Bureau, IRS, Veterans Affairs, FAA, Primerica Conyers and DeKalb Workforce Development.
