City of Perry hosting restaurant career fair Wednesday
18 restaurants are participating at Wednesday's event.
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)— Perry is hosting a restaurant career fair on Wednesday, September 22 for anyone looking to get into the service industry.
The city says it realized a lot of local restaurants are short staffed, and they need help getting employees.
18 restaurants are participating at Wednesday’s event:
- Cracker Barrel
- The Swanson
- Bodega Brew
- Waffle House
- The Perfect Pear Catering
- Sonny’s BBQ
- Red Lobster
- Byrd & Company
- Concessions by Cox
- Burger King
More than 200 jobs are available. We spoke with Ashley Hardin, Economic Development Administrator for Perry, about the career fair.
“Our restaurants in Perry, and I think in Georgia and throughout the country all have a staffing shortage,” she said. “However, we know that there’s people looking for jobs and that’s why we’re putting this all under one roof. You can come apply and have options for what restaurant you want to work at.”
The career fair is from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Perry Events Center for anyone 16 or older.
