Business, Events

Atlanta, GA-- In commemoration of Workforce Development Month, DeKalb Workforce Development (DWD) will host its 5th Annual Workforce Development Day career event on Friday, Sept. 17, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Decatur Conference Plaza, 130 Clairmont Ave. in Decatur.   

DeKalb County’s residents must be gainfully employed for DeKalb’s economy to grow.  In order to achieve this goal, DWD has collaborated with the business community, training providers and community partners to take a new and innovative approach to the average job fair. 

Not only will companies be on hand to actively recruit for open positions and to inform job seekers about industry forecasted jobs, industry professionals will also conduct job readiness workshops that focus on resume writing, interview techniques, networking and personal branding and marketing.  Community partners will also share information about their available resources.  

This day is dedicated to the concept of “Thinking Globally and Hiring Locally” under DWD’s E3 Business Strategy—Education, Employment and Economic Development.  It is DWD’s mission to bridge the gap between these three separate entities through strategic planning and preparation.  DeKalb Workforce Development believes in growth, development, lifelong learning and the importance of contributing to the economic health of DeKalb County and the State of Georgia.
