Shorter University and sponsors gearing up for September Career Expo
July 12, 2012 - The fourth annual Northwest Georgia/Shorter University Career Expo will be held Thursday, Sept. 20, from 9 a.m. until noon. The event, which is free for both job seekers and potential employers, will be held at The Forum in downtown Rome.
Job seekers are encouraged but not required to pre-register for the expo by logging on to www.nwgashorterucareerexpo.com. There is no cost to attend, and the expo is open to the public. Local businesses wishing to participate are required to register online at www.nwgashorterucareerexpo.com or by contacting organizer Britt Madden Jr. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Madden, who serves as the executive director for adult enrollment for Shorter’s College of Adult and Professional Programs, has led the career expo for the past three years. “Over these last few years, we have seen thousands participate in our event. Local businesses and industries have found qualified employees to build up their workforce and skilled professionals have discovered employment opportunities by attending our event,” said Madden. “Shorter, along with our partners, have said every year that our hope is to make a difference in someone’s life and to provide an opportunity that they might not otherwise have.”
In conjunction with the career expo, a “Dress for Success” event will also be held. This event, designed as a resource for job seekers, will take place on Thursday, Sept. 6, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at The Forum. Open to the public and free of charge, the event will teach participants how to dress appropriately and with confidence when applying and interviewing for a job.
The Career Expo is sponsored by Shorter University, the Georgia Department of Labor, the Georgia Department of Veteran Services, Rome Radio Partners, the Rome News-Tribune, The Forum, and Floyd County.
