MTC Tifton Career fair to aid local job hunters

Posted: Updated:

TIFTON, GA.  The 2009 Community Career Fair in Tifton on Thursday November 5 could help ease some worries and give weary job seekers a leg-up in a competitive employment field.

More than 50 local businesses and industries will assemble at Moultrie Technical College's Tifton Campus Conference Center from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. for the 2009 Community Career Fair.  Moultrie Tech and the Tifton office of the Georgia Department of Labor will join forces to present the event.

The event is open to the public as well as all Moultrie Tech students and graduates.  The purpose of this event is to familiarize the businesses and industries in our region and job hunters with one another. 

Whether or not employers have jobs to offer at this time, job seekers will be interested in learning about local companies and what skills they would expect their employees to possess.  In turn, businesses may find matches for future employment. 

"Moultrie Technical College's fall quarter will end on December 16; therefore, business and industries will have the first opportunity to meet the college's newest class of well-trained graduates," says Joy Warnock, MTC coordinator of career services.

Additionally, all job seekers are encouraged to bring updated resumes and all information necessary to complete job applications on site.  Furthermore, to create a positive first impression with employers, Warnock urges participants to come dressed in business attire.

Industries expected to be at the fair include armed forces, banking, beauty, child care, education, fitness, food processing, government, health care, home improvement, industrial manufacturing, insurance, law enforcement, media, non-profits, sales and transportation, among others.

Admission and parking for the fair are free.  All participants who register at the door will be eligible for door prizes throughout the day.
