The Interactive College of Technology in Gainesville and Goodwill Career Center have joined forces to kickstart people’s careers in Hall County by hosting a summer job fair.
The free public event will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 30, at the Interactive College of Technology’s Gainesville campus on 2323 Browns Bridge Road.
Sofia Lukas, the college’s senior campus director, said this job fair is the largest yet for the Gainesville location. More than 20 local employers will set up booths, all of which are hiring.
“We just want to share that information to let people know who’s looking, what they’re looking for and how your experience matches the job,” Lukas said.
The attending employers encompass customer service, manufacturing, warehouse distribution industries and other fields. Lukas said people can expect to see familiar faces like Sherwin-Willaims, Zebra Technologies, the Juvenile Justice Department, King’s Hawaiin and Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Gainesville.
In addition to exposing job opportunities in the area, Lukas said the event will give people a better idea of the educational requirements and skills needed to pursue their dream careers. She said many of these certifications can be pursued through the Interactive College of Technology’s programs like English is a second language, office technology and business information systems.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their resumes and wear business professional attire.
“Give yourself a chance and an opportunity to become aware of what is in the community and what opportunities there are,” Lukas said. “Let’s all grow together, not only as a small community, but as an extended community of Hall County.”
Employers interested in participating in the job fair can contact Bob Faver, the college’s education director, at 678-450-0550.
