Job seekers in Henry County will have the opportunity to connect with potential employers at an upcoming job fair.

Connecting Henry, a local nonprofit that helps address challenges to families, and McDonough-based human resources company MBC Training and Recruiting Service, will host the fair April 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Heritage Park, 101 Lake Dow Road in McDonough.

The event is free and open to any residents looking for employment.

According to Susan Crumbley, the nonprofit’s interim director, attendees can network with local companies and organizations like Piedmont Henry Hospital, Bank of America, BestBank, Family Dollar Store, Georgia Crown Distributing Co., the Georgia Department of Labor, the Henry County Sheriff’s Office, Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse, Publix Supermarket, Sam’s Club, Southern Crescent Technical College and Waffle House.

The Atlanta Regional Commission’s Mobile Career Resource Center will also be on site with several computer stations for visitors to use in resume development and job search assistance.

Company founder Barbara Coleman said she and Crumbley have made “every effort” to ensure that this is event is not a typical job fair.

“Visitors can expect a good variety of employers to be present and we have invited companies that are hiring,” she said. “At least one company is hiring up to 100 people, others 50, some 20 or more employees and to date we have more than 20 employers that have committed to coming to this event, and the majority of them are in the local, surrounding counties.”

“I encourage anyone that is looking for employment to plan to attend this dynamic event. We are excited to be able to bring something like this to the residents of Henry County.”

Crumbley said job seekers should “come prepared with several copies of their resume and dress professionally.”

Any employer that would like to participate may do so for free by registering at
