Kauffman Tire hopes to fill many positions at job fair Thursday

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Many of you are having a tough time finding work these days.

Thursday November 14th, Kauffman tire will team up with South Georgia Technical College for a job fair.

Kauffman Tire has been a family owned and operated company since 1936. Now, they want to make South Georgians a part of their family.

"We will be having a jobs fair for all of their locations. Not only those in Atlanta but also those in Florida. Of course those new stores in Albany as well as their store they will announce one in the next week or so over in Cordele and so they will need technicians for that operation," said Wally Summers Vice President of economic and development services at SGTC.

You don't have to be a technician to attend the fair because there are a variety of positions open.

"But they're also looking for sales people, management people, supervisor people and the whole package. So great job opportunities with a great company," said Summers.

Applications will be provided at the fair, but there are a few things you should bring to make you stand out.

"If they have their work ready certificate or if they have their work keys assessment if they have taken that, they need to bring that with them because that's important and if they have a resume that's good to bring," said Wally Summers.

Summers has some key advice to applicants who land interviews.

"This company is very people oriented and they like to see people that have a good personality that smile that can give you a good hand shake. Very customer driven and if someone would come in with those kinds of features that would help them get through the interview process," said Summers.

Kauffman is coming prepared to offer some jobs, they won't be in Americus, but some of them will be in nearby towns.

Huffman is just opened a store in Albany, and they're still looking for workers there.

The job fair will be held in the Pope Center on South Georgia Technical College campus from 11AM to 2PM and then 4PM to 7PM.
