The economy here in Georgia has shown signs of improvement in recent months, with a report from the Georgia Department of Labor just last week indicating Georgia’s unemployment rate dropped in March to its lowest rate since December of 2007. However, the unemployment rate remains stubbornly high for many people in our community.
In an effort to help, I am proud to announce the 14th Annual Thirteenth Congressional District Jobs Fair. The Jobs Fair will be held on Friday, April 28, from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, at the Georgia International Convention Center, located at 2000 Convention Center Concourse, College Park, GA 30337.
145 of Georgia’s top employers will be recruiting job seekers to fill over 6,000 openings. To register and obtain a list of all participating employers, please visit www.davidscott.house.gov.
The Jobs Fair will also host the following federal and state agencies:
U.S. Veterans Administration (VA) Atlanta Regional Benefits Office and Atlanta VA Medical Center to provide special employment, health and benefits resources for veterans;
U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to host a Small Business Forum providing information on access to capital, state and federal procurement contracts, and film and entertainment opportunities for small businesses; and
HomeSafe Georgia to deliver on-site counseling to homeowners facing unemployment or underemployment while they seek new work.
