Prepare for the job fair

Write your resume at a workshop at the library in Sylvania on July 22 and take it to a job fair in Statesboro on July 30 that will have employers looking to fill nearly 200 jobs.

That’s real, available-right-now, not-too-far-from-Statesboro jobs.

“There are jobs out there. People don’t know about them,” said Barbara Rushing Threatt, employment marketing representative with the Georgia Department of Labor’s Statesboro Career Center. “The employers that will be there have open positions. They’re not there for show. They’re not false hope.”

The jobs all are within 60 miles of Statesboro and include commercial drivers, warehouse, manufacturing production, manufacturing production supervisor, nursing, patient care, store manager, correctional officer, food service and insurance agents.

The event, called the “Coastal Career Fair,” is from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 30, at Ogeechee Technical College’s Occupational Studies Building, at 1 Joe Kennedy Blvd., in Statesboro. From 9 a.m. to noon that same day, at the same location, will be workshops on interviewing skills and resume preparation.

Participants are urged to bring their resumes on an electronic device. They won’t be writing resumes from scratch, but they will show people how to write one.

The fair is sponsored by the Georgia Department of Labor, Ogeechee Technical College, Coastal Workforce of Savannah, Northland Cable, Existing Industry and the University of Phoenix.

For more information, contact Threatt at (912) 681-5156 or at Barbara.Rushing@dol.state.ga.us.

In Sylvania, from 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, July 22, a resume and job search workshop will be held at the Screven County Library, which is at 106 S. Community Drive.

The workshop is sponsored by the Georgia Department of Labor, Augusta Career Center and Sylvania One Stop Career Center. The people running the workshop will help participants write resumes, learn good techniques for job searches and learn such things as how to dress for an interview.

Sylvania’s One Stop Career Center is at 111 N. Main St. and is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Latasha Hawkins, the skill center specialist, can be reached at 564-5882 or 564-2553. The office can help people with resumes and job searches and also help find resources for job training.
