Community Expo to provide training, education, and employment resources

 Citizens searching for additional education, job training or employment to improve their chances of obtaining and keeping stable employment can mark their calendars for Thursday, August 8, 2019.   WorkSource Fulton will host its first 2019 Community Expo.   The Expo, hosted by the WorkSource Division, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the South Fulton Career Center located at 5710 Stonewall Tell Rd, Suite160, College Park, GA 30349.

The Expo is the first of what will be a quarterly event to assist job seekers with their search and employers with their efforts to obtain qualified workers. More than 40 employers, service providers and educational institutions are collaborating with Fulton County WorkSource to prepare and train eligible and enthusiastic individuals who are ready to begin new careers with new opportunities for growth.

Participating higher education institutions include among others Atlanta Technical College, Atlanta Metropolitan State College, Clayton State University, Fortis College, Georgia State University, and Gwinnett Technical College of Adult Education.   Educational advisors from the participating education institutions and WorkSource Fulton staff will be available to discuss potential WIOA training and employment for eligible individuals.
