Bourdeaux to Host Jobs Fair With Thousands of Openings

DULUTH, GA — Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) recently announced that she will be hosting a job fair on Friday, August 13 from 1-4 PM in Georgia’s 7th Congressional District to connect talent with opportunity. Currently, more than 50 businesses are signed up and will be hiring for over 2,000 positions in the service industry, manufacturing, education, local government, and more. 

“The past year and a half has been difficult for all of us, but the pandemic particularly upended the lives of hardworking Georgians who lost their jobs due to the virus. Just as many people found themselves unemployed, other businesses have become understaffed as business picks back up and are now looking to hire workers quickly.” said Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux. “This job fair will help get individuals and businesses back on their feet.”

The jobs fair will be held at the Gas South Convention Center — formerly Infinite Energy Arena — and job seekers are encouraged to RSVP on Eventbrite. Businesses will be spaced out in individual stalls to allow for proper social distancing, and all participants will be asked to wear masks.
