The City of Chattanooga, Father to the Fatherless and American Job Center Tennessee are partnering together again to provide services and training to ex-offenders ahead of the “A New Life” Job Fair on Friday, Oct. 26, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The fair will be at the Eastgate Towne Center, 5600 Brainerd Road.
This two-day program starts with a career prep day on Thursday, Oct.
25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. which will provide job preparation training, resume building and interview skills to attendees as well as offer free haircuts and styling and proper clothing for the interviews.
“Many of the men and women re-entering our communities often don’t know where or how to start looking for a job,” said Troy Rogers, Public Safety coordinator for City of Chattanooga. “This event is an opportunity to provide folks with the right tools, training and confidence for a second chance at life.”
Participants in the program must pre-register by Friday, Oct. 19, before the event and will be required to complete the career prep day in order to participate in the job fair. To register, call 423 643-7820.
