Rockdale County sponors job fair in April

CONYERS — It’s time to update the resume and polish the wardrobe. Rockdale County will once again host the Rockdale County Career Fair to help bring prospective employers and employees together.

The event, which is free, is set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, April 11, at Rockdale Career Academy, 1064 Culpepper Drive.

Employers who would like to participate in the fair must register and reserve a booth by Friday, March 21. To register, email deborah.lowery@rockdalecounty.org.

A variety of government agencies and private organizations will take part in the hiring event, such as Asbury Automotive Group, Country Inn & Suites, Dart Container, Georgia Department of Public Safety, Lowes, Oxford College of Emory University, Rockdale County Fire Rescue, Rockdale County Public Schools, and Tires Plus. Only companies or agencies with immediate job openings within three to six months will recruit to fill job vacancies, so job-seekers are advised to arrive in professional attire with resumes in hand.

During the fair, prospective employees will also be able to participate in one-on-one resume reviews and workshops covering topics such as successful interviewing and job coaching.

The career fair is sponsored by Rockdale County government with support from Chick-fil-A at Turner Hill Road, PCA Educational Services, the Georgia Department of Labor and Rockdale County Public Schools. Chick-fil-A will sell breakfast and lunch items to career fair participants and job-seekers during the event.
