Today Congressman David Scott  announced that he will host his 10th Annual Jobs Fair on Friday, April 19, 2013, at the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC) in College Park. The event will run from 10am to 3pm.  

Job seekers who attend may obtain information and be considered for more than 1,992 positions with this year’s participating employers.  The employers at Congressman Scott’s Jobs Fair represent a diverse group of Georgia’s top corporations, small businesses, and local and federal government agencies, offering a rich variety of job opportunities. 

Congressman David Scott is also pleased to partner this year with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs’ HomeSafe program. Funded by the U.S. Treasury's Hardest Hit Fund, HomeSafe Georgia is a statewide unemployment mortgage payment assistance program to prevent foreclosures. The program may help homeowners by providing "bridge" mortgage assistance for up to 18 months to many Georgians who are unemployed or have seen a dramatic decrease in their income through no fault of their own.

Attendees are encouraged to take MARTA to Airport station and board the free ATL SkyTrain to the Convention Center or take MARTA to College Park station and board a special MARTA bus shuttle to the event.

For more information, including how an employer may participate, please call 770-432-5405.
