U.S. Rep. John Barrow (D-Augusta) will host jobs fairs in Augusta and Statesboro on Aug. 11 and 21, respectively. The jobs fairs will match job seekers with local employers throughout the 12th District.
“My top priority is to ensure that everybody in my district who wants a job, has a job,” Barrow said. “These job fairs will allow folks in the 12th District to meet with employers to talk about opportunities right here in Georgia.”
In Statesboro, Barrow is teaming with the Chamber of Commerce to host a veterans’ jobs fair as part of the Chamber’s “Hiring Our Heroes” initiative.
“Our veterans face a lot of challenges when they return home, but finding a job shouldn’t be one of them,” Barrow continued. “We’re working with the Chamber of Commerce to bring local employers to one location to make it easier for our veterans.”
