Goodwill of North Georgia is hosting job fairs Wednesday at its nine locations across the region, including Oakwood.

The organization is expecting nearly 80 companies to participate, recruiting professional, warehouse and retail workers.

“We know many people start the year looking for new job opportunities,” said Elaine Armstrong, Goodwill director of public relations. “This one-day event will allow us to help them connect with employers, while highlighting the myriad resources each location offers every day.”

Job seekers should come in professional attire with several copies of their resumé. A list of employers who will be at the event can be found at

The job fair is 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 3715 Mundy Mill Road in Oakwood. Other locations hosting fairs include those in Athens, Atlanta, Decatur, Duluth, Cartersville, Rome, Smyrna and Woodstock.

Goodwill uses revenue from selling donated goods to fund its career centers and employment services. Goodwill career centers are free and open to the public, offering resume-writing tools, computers and other resources.
