The Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) will host another “Ask Ted” (Type, Explore, Discover) online chat on Wednesday. The chat will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the GDOL website www.dol.state.ga.us.
Entitled “Seasonal and Temporary Employment,” the 90-minute chat will focus on how job seekers can enter or re-enter the workforce through seasonal or temporary jobs. The chat will help job seekers discover the advantages of these types of jobs, learn where and when to look for them, as well as dispel myths about these jobs. A panel of experts will be available to provide useful job-search tips and how to parlay these jobs into permanent positions.
People may ask questions during the live chat or email questions in advance to email@example.com
