MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - The 2016 Community Career Resource Fair in Moultrie today, should change job hunters into members of a viable workforce.

Fifty businesses and industries will be represented in the Southwest Georgia Bank Conference Center at Southern Regional Technical College's (SRTC) Veterans Parkway location from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. for the 2016 Community Career Resource Fair.

SRTC and the Moultrie office of the Georgia Department of Labor will join forces to present the event to familiarize the businesses and industries in our region and job hunters with one another.

The event is open to the public as well as all SRTC students and graduates.  Whether or not employers have jobs to offer at this time, job seekers will benefit from learning about local companies and what skills they would expect their employees to possess. Businesses may find matches for future openings.

Industries include healthcare, industrial manufacturing, sales and banking, among others.

"If an employer finds a good fit for an employment need, our well-trained, educated graduates will be ready to start work within a few weeks of the career fair," says Dana Lewis, SRTC Career Services Coordinator.

Job seekers are encouraged to bring updated resumes and all information necessary to complete job applications on site, and come dressed in business professional attire.

Because this is a professional event and space is limited, Lewis says no children or strollers will be permitted.

Among the employers expected to participate in the fair are Air Pro Heating and Cooling, Ambassador Personnel, Avon Products, Coastal Plain Area EOA, Inc., Colquitt County Serenity House, Comfort Keepers, Convergys, Delta Life Insurance, Direct

Life Services, ESG Operation, Federal Bureau of Prisons, the Georgia Department of Corrections and Autry State Prison, the Georgia Department of Labor, Georgia Premier Services, the Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency, H & R Block, Labor Finders of Tifton, Lowe's, Merchants Foodservice, Moultrie YMCA, National Beef, New Hire Solutions, Papa Johns, Quality Employment Service, Sam's Club, Southeast Corrections, Southwest Georgia Bank, Telamon Corporation, Tift Regional Health System, Troy University, Turning Point Care Center, Verizon, and many more.
