Those people who need to polish their resumes a bit before meeting prospective employers at the AUSA Job Fair Wednesday morning at Fort Benning shouldn't fret.
The Georgia Department of Labor and the Columbus chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management have you covered.
"We're going to have computers for people to work on their resumes," said Walt Pollock, a veterans employment counselor with the Georgia Department of Labor's Columbus Career Center. "SHRM is going to be providing resume assistance as well."
There also will be a copy service available through The Overby Co., Pollock said, while hearing-impaired and Spanish language interpreters will be on hand.
Never miss a local story.
Just get there early. The fair begins at 9 a.m. and runs through 2 p.m. It's taking place in a new spot this year — the Benning Club, Building 128, off Morrison Avenue.
About 125 employers — local, regional and national — are expected to attend the event, which Pollock believes could draw more than 3,000 job seekers.
Be prepared for tight quarters at the new location, which formerly was called the Fort Benning Officers' Club.
"Elbow to elbow" is how described the layout of Wednesday's event.
The 15th annual Association of the United States Army Job Fair is being held primarily for those troops in uniform who may be nearing the end of their term of service. But the general public is welcome to attend.
To get there, enter Fort Benning through Benning Boulevard or Interstate 185. The public must check in at security points. Make sure to have proper identification, vehicle registration and proof of insurance with you. Follow signs to The Benning Club.
