AUGUSTA (WJBF) – The Augusta, Georgia Human Resources Department is hosting their Mega Hiring Event in August.

There are 80 available jobs listed on the City of Augusta’s website currently.

Employment manager, Whitney Sims said having 3 separate events means more focus on job seekers.

“Of course we have 40 plus departments here with Augusta Richmond County. So being able to split it up gives departments time to actually meet, speak with candidates, interview as well as offer jobs if possible.”

Sims explained that this is not just a hiring event. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about what the city does.

“So if they want to come and networks and just learn more about what the departments do and what services that we offer them, it’s very well a great opportunity to come out and learn more about our departments,” she said.

Attendees should bring a current resume and be prepared for a possible interview. Sims revealed some people could even get a job offer on the spot.

All sessions will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Linda W. Beazley Room in the Augusta Municipal Building, 535 Telfair Street.
