Job seekers tune in for job fair

By Christian Jennings - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Thousands of Georgians remain unemployed.  But the Georgia Department of Labor hopes an interactive approach will get some people back to work.

The WALB News 10 studio turned into a virtual job fair this afternoon.

A phone bank was set up here as well as in Atlanta and Macon to take calls from job seekers with questions about job openings.

The two hour broadcast highlighted 100 job openings across the state. But you can find more openings at your local career center.

"There's hope out there. There are still jobs available. There are employers that are still hiring. And they need to seek out those services that's available to them. Georgia Department of Labor offers a very wide range of services that help people find work," said Mikell Fryer with the Georgia Department of Labor.

A career expo was also set up in Macon today where job seekers got the chance to come out and meet potential employers.

The Georgia Department of Labor encourages everyone looking for work to stop by their local career for not only jobs but also tools to help you stand out in this tough market.
