Call center company Convergys needs more than 150 employees for its 1838 Victory Drive facility in Columbus.
To accomplish that, the Georgia Department of Labor’s Columbus Career Center will host a recruiting event 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 16. The career center is located at 700 Veterans Parkway.
Criteria for job seekers include having a high school diploma or general education diploma (GED) and at least six months of sales associate experience. Applicants must apply online at employgeorgia.com prior to an assessment, pre-screening and any interviews that may take place. Dress properly when seeking a job, the department said.
Never miss a local story.
When it committed to Columbus last May, Convergys said it plans to create more than 450 jobs over 18 months, which would exceed the 200 or so full-time workers call center operator Road America had on site at the Victory Drive facility before departing Columbus last year.
Cincinnati-based Convergys provides back-office support for a variety of companies and has hired customer service representatives locally, as well as management, human resources and recruiting staffers.
For more information, contact the Columbus Career Center at 706-649-7423. The center is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
