The city of Chattanooga, Father to the Fatherless and American Job Center Tennessee are partnering together to provide services and training to ex-offenders ahead of the A New Life Job Fair on Friday.
This two-day program aimed at helping ex-offenders navigate the job hunting process starts with a career prep day on Thursday, 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. Then on Friday, participants who completed the career prep day will apply for jobs and interview with local businesses who are hiring.
The career prep day and job fair will both be held at American Job Center at The Eastgate Towne Center, 5600 Brainerd Road.
The career prep day will be Thursday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and the job fair will be Friday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Participants in the program had to pre-register prior to the event and will be required to complete the career prep day in order to participate in the job fair.
