Thomasville, GA- The 13th Annual Cairo/Thomasville Career Expo is scheduled for Thursday, February 20, from 9:00 a.m. to noon at Southwest Georgia Technical College’s main campus in Thomasville.
This event is sponsored jointly by Southwest Georgia Technical College (SWGTC), the Georgia Department of Labor Thomasville and Cairo Career Centers, Thomas and Grady County Employer Committees, Georgia Department of Labor Veterans Services, Thomasville-Thomas County and Cairo-Grady County Chambers of Commerce, Thomasville Times Enterprise, The Cairo Messenger, and radio station WGRA.
This event offers employers and job-seekers an opportunity to meet and discuss local employment options. Those seeking employment may apply for both full and part-time positions with participating employers, most of which currently have open positions or expect to in the near future. Last year, more than 50 businesses and resources participated in the Expo, and event organizers hope to get even more organizations involved this year. Among the expected employers are Archbold Memorial Hospital, Florida State University, New Hire Solutions, Thomasville City Schools, and many more.
“This is an excellent opportunity to pair employers seeking well-qualified applicants with highly-skilled individuals looking not only for a job, but for a career opportunity to utilize their education, skills and strong work ethics. It’s a win-win for the community and for local industry. This year we have more employers and resources already committed to attend than we have ever had. I believe this is an indicator that the economy is building and that employers feel it is safe to enlarge their workforce. This job fair is the venue to make that happen,” commented Dr. Jeanine Long, Director of Career Placement and Development at SWGTC.
The public is cordially invited to attend this event. Job-seekers are asked to dress in business attire and bring resumes with them. More information may be obtained by calling Dr. Jeanine Long at SWGTC at (229) 227-2668.
