The Career Expo will feature employers from a range of industries and company sizes in Dunwoody and surrounding communities, including Northside Hospital, IHG, Hapag-Lloyd, UPS, and State Farm. Perimeter Mall merchants and Dunwoody hotels, like the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter, Atlanta Marriott Perimeter Center, and the Hyatt Place Atlanta Perimeter, will also be on site. All are welcome, and there is no cost for attending. Job seekers are encouraged to register in advance using this website: http://hiredunwoody.com/.
“We’re grateful for our partners and our common goal of helping job seekers discover new opportunities with room to grow,” said Dunwoody Mayor Lynn Deutsch. “Easy access from MARTA, I-285 and Georgia 400 make Dunwoody a great fit for so many job seekers and employers.”
Job seekers are encouraged to arrive early at 10 a.m. to take part in a one-hour career workshop before the mall opens. Presented by WorkSource DeKalb, Corners Outreach, and IN THE DOOR, a workforce development strategy and training firm, the workshop will focus on polishing resumes, plus tips and tricks for navigating career fairs. In addition, Discover Dunwoody Director of Marketing Mark Galvin will share strategies for optimizing your LinkedIn profile, feed, and connections.
“HIREDunwoody is designed to be a one-stop shop, where you can learn about job openings, meet with hiring managers, and explore a new career path,” said George Northrop, Career Center Director at the Community Assistance Center. “Career expos like this help companies connect with job seekers who might not make it through the usual resume screening but have the skills or experience that make a great employee. HIREDunwoody will create opportunities to find the right role in Dunwoody for job seekers.”
During the event, WorkSource DeKalb will set up its Mobile Career Resource Center. It’s a 13-station, state-of-the-art, fully-accessible computer lab that will allow job seekers to update their resumes and print out copies to present to prospective employers.
