AMERICUS – South Georgia Technical College (SGTC) and The Staffing People, a staffing and human resources company in Americus, recently joined forces to hold a hiring event in John M. Pope Industrial Technology Center on the SGTC campus. Approximately thirty companies were on hand with jobs available for qualified candidates.

More than 100 job seekers participated in the event. Cynthia Carter, SGTC Director of Career Services, said several job seekers had already sharpened and rehearsed their elevator speech, and many of the job seekers had a targeted job in mind.

In addition to meeting with prospective employers, job fair attendees were offered guidance on improving and tailoring their resumes to increase their chances of success on the job hunt. SGTC students and graduates had the opportunity to meet with employers to discuss potential jobs and internship opportunities.

Nichole Adams, Marketing Manager with The Staffing People received positive feedback from participating employers.  She said, “we’re all fighting together to help employers find a capable workforce.”
