The CAC Career Center, working with the City of Sandy Springs and the Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber of Commerce, hosted a multi-company career fair on Wednesday, March 13 at City Springs Performing Arts Center. Featuring over 20 local companies offering fair wages, great benefits, and internal career paths, the expo saw over 250 jobseekers looking to find great careers in their own backyard.

“Our 253 jobseekers got to cut through the red tape and meet face-to-face with quality employers in our area,” shares CAC Career Center Director Lisa Wallace. Attendees were able to talk to recruiters directly to make a personal impression and avoid getting caught in AI-screened application processes. Wallace continues: “Making a direct connection with decision-makers helps both jobseekers and employers, identifying great candidates based on who they are, not what their resume looks like.”

The Sandy Springs Connects! Career Expo will return in September 2024 to continue connecting workforce and workplace in the Perimeter area.
