The Georgia Department of Labor and several other local organizations are co-sponsoring a Middle Georgia recruiting event this month in Macon.

Job seekers will be interviewed for positions in manufacturing and other industries and assessed for potential eligibility to participate in job training programs.

The event will be held 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Nov. 14 in Building H on the Macon campus of Central Georgia Technical College at 3300 Macon Tech Drive.

Other event sponsors include the workforce division of the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Middle Georgia Consortium and the Middle Georgia Regional Commission.

Some of the employers expected to participate are Aspen Products, Blue Bird Bus Co. and Georgia Artisan, also known as Georgia Pallet. The companies are recruiting for a wide variety of jobs, including carpenters, painters, mechanics, body-repair technicians, machine operators, manufacturing assembly-line workers and personnel to pack boxes of manufactured goods for distribution.

The Department Of Labor staff and other co-sponsors will discuss job training programs, including on-the-job training with the job seekers. Also, the state labor department will provide employment-related services to job seekers attending the event.

All manufacturing workers must be at least 18 years old, according to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations.

Job seekers interested in attending the events may visit www.employgeorgia.com to create an account and upload, or prepare, a resume. Having an Employ Georgia account expedites the interview process. This website showed 2,212 new active job postings in Middle Georgia in September.

Applicants are encouraged to bring copies of their resumes and dress business casual to improve their chances to be hired. For more information about the recruitment, or employers wanting to participate, email swat@gdol.ga.gov.
