Georgia released its unemployment numbers, showing the number of people applying for unemployment insurance claims is on the rise.
Nearly 90,000 people filed for initial unemployment claims during the month of January. However, that number was nearly 6% lower than it was one year ago.
These numbers came out just as the Warner Robins Air Force Base hosted a job fair today for anyone who needed a chance to look for work.
Employers at the fair said even though there are alot of people who usually come out looking for work at job fairs, it is still important to make a great first impression.
Brad Meeks recruits for Waldon University, and he says the first thing he notices when people come to his desk looking for work, is the person themself.
"The way people dress, the way they approach you. The questions they ask...if they introduce themselves when they walk up to the table."
Director of Job Fair Operations Vicki Washington, also says to dress for success and do your homework before you walk into a job fair.
"Find out who is going to be there...come prepared, come with resumes."
But Washington also cautions what not to do when you come to events like these.
"If you've shown up here in flip flops, pushing a stroller, you may have gotten yourself absolutely discounted because of that. You really want to come to these, just like you would approach any other job."
There were more than 1,000 people who attended today's job fair.
