This is the second job fair that Shorter University has organized. Last year's event attracted 2,500 participants, including job seekers and employers.
This year's fair is expected to attract more than 50 employers, according to Britt Madden Jr., job fair organizer and corporate education liaison for Shorter University's College of Adult and Professional Programs.
"Last year's event was overwhelmingly successful. Many job seekers found employment and many employers found qualified and skilled employees. That was our goal for last year and we plan to repeat it again this year," Madden said.
The job fair is sponsored by the Georgia Department of Labor, The Forum, The Rome News-Tribune and Rome Radio Partners.
More details of the job fair will be announced at the Rome/Floyd County Chamber of Commerce Business Before Hours event on Tuesday, Aug. 3.
The event, open to all Chamber of Commerce members, will be held at 8 a.m. on the campus of Shorter University in the Austin Moses room. Light refreshments will be served.
