ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A contractor working at the Albany Marine base has immediate job openings for more than 100-people.

And the U-S Census Bureau is looking to hire hundreds of people to help them collect information next year.

Both will begin interviewing applicants Friday.

Goodwill Officials are busy today setting up chairs and tables, getting ready for what they expect will be hundreds of job applicants Friday and Saturday at their career center.

Career Center Manager Dendra Davis- Jackson said "We are expecting as many people to show up that can and will."

Tuesday AECOM Government Services announced they need to hire 125 people for a contractors job at the Albany Marine Corps Logistics Base. They need mechanics, electronic technicians, sheet metal workers, welders, body metal mechanics, and stock clerks, ready to go to work December 27th.

Also Friday at Goodwill the U.S. Census Bureau is interviewing for workers to conduct the 2010 Census, and they are hiring for hundreds of full and part time positions.

Davis-Jackson said "The money's there, the opportunity is there, the position is there. Come on down and see if you can't go ahead and get it."

Goodwill will open their doors at 8 Friday and Saturday morning for people to start filling out the forms. AECOM will hold interviews starting at 10 Friday and Saturday, until 4 PM.   They hope to fill all 125 jobs with locally hired people, ready to go to work by December 27th. So most will know by the weekend if they are hired. The Census Bureau will give their qualifying tests, saying they need an unlimited amount of people for the coming two years.

Davis Jackson said "That is probably one of the best Christmas gifts we can help people with this year."

Again the job opportunites can be applied for Friday and Saturday from 10 to 4 at the Goodwill Career Center on North Slappey. Bring your resume, the census demands two officials pieces of Identification, and they ask you to dress for a job interview.

The Georgia Department of Labor reported Thursday that the state's unemployment rate rose to 7.5-percent in November.

Right now more than 365000 unemployed Georgians are looking for work.
