The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce will host a job fair and business expo from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 9 at the Shuman Recreation Center in Hinesville.
The event is hosted in partnership with the Georgia Department of Labor and the Liberty/Long Employer Committee.
Job-seekers and employers looking to hire, as well as businesses that want to market their services and products, may participate. Job seekers can bring their resumes and fill out applications on-site, while vendors participating in the business expo will showcase their wares.
“We are looking forward to our first Liberty County Job/ Vendor Fair in the past three years and are excited about the industries that will be attending with job opportunities with some of the largest employers in Liberty County,” chamber Chairman Daniel Clark said. “These are good quality jobs, with good businesses that offer great benefits and advancement opportunities to every employee.”
Booths for the business expo are $200 for chamber members and $300 for non-members.
The early bird registration fee is $175 for chamber members who register by March 25.
A business-expo booth will allow vendors to market their business, wares and services.
The job-fair portion will allow businesses to speak with potential new hires. Businesses seeking employees can bring applications and have representatives on-site.
The fee for a job-fair booth is $100 for chamber members and $150 for non-members.
The chamber will supply a table and two chairs for each booth. Vendors with an expo booth may pay an additional fee, to be added to the Passport to Winnings ticket, to assure attendance at their booth by each attendee who registers to win a cash prize of $250. In return, vendors also will receive a spreadsheet after the event with contact information for the attendees who registered to win. The fee is $50.
Space is limited. To register and reserve a booth, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 368-4445.
