COLUMBUS, Ga — Fort Service Learning Magnet Academy announces it will hold its annual job fair Thursday morning.
Magnet Coordinator Jessica Bennett says, “The idea for a job fair came from [Fort Middle’s] sixth grade students several years ago as they researched community needs.”
“Students realized that we had a large population of people in need of jobs,” Bennett says. “Students wrote letters to businesses and made phone calls to invite businesses to participate.”
She adds the job fair has had more than 300 people attend past job fairs.
The fair offers the chance for job seekers to be interviewed on site and a station to fill out online applications.
Student volunteers will also be at the event to help participants write resumes and print copies.
The job fair will be at Fort Service Learning Magnet Academy, 2900 Woodruff Farm Road, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
