Job seekers can spark new opportunities and meet local employers at the upcoming Rockdale County career fair on Fri., Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rockdale Career Academy, 1064 Culpepper Dr., Conyers.
Attendees will find a variety of government agencies, small businesses, non-government organizations, and companies such as Best Buy, Pratt Industries, Lowes, Acuity Brand Lighting, Bostik Inc., and Sears Holding Co. are coming to find new employees. Only employers with immediate job openings or job openings coming within three to six months can participate in the fair, so job seekers are encouraged to arrive in professional attire with resumes in hand.
Workshops also will be provided covering topics such as how to find a job using social media, realistic job search strategies and tips for a successful interview. There will also be one-on-one resume reviews so participants should bring extra copies of their resume for helpful feedback if they plan to have it reviewed.
