Georgia Highway Contractors Association Partnering With Latin American Association for Road Construction Job Fair on March 16
ATLANTA, GA (March 5, 2019) The Georgia Highway Contractors Association (GHCA) is partnering with the Latin American Association to host a job fair for those interested in a career in road construction. The fair will take place Saturday, March 16 from 9 a.m. – noon at the Latin American Association in Atlanta, 2750 Buford Highway, N.E.
Twelve metro Atlanta-area highway contractors are participating in the job fair as they gear up for their busy season which begins in early spring with the onset of warmer temperatures. Contractors are currently hiring men and women for a range of road construction job types and experience levels. The industry offers full-time employment, excellent pay and benefits, and the opportunity to advance.
The job fair is being held as a part of the GHCA Fast Lane to Jobs campaign which is helping to raise awareness about the need for highway construction workers throughout the state. Thanks to the passage of the nearly $1 billion-a-year transportation funding bill in 2015 by the Georgia Legislature, the increase in road projects means that Georgia’s highway contractors currently have hundreds of jobs to fill.
See GeorgiaRoadJobs.com, a comprehensive website GHCA developed to educate prospective workers about the many benefits of a career in highway construction. Website is in English and Spanish. Those interested in attending the job fair can register on the website. High school seniors pursuing a construction career are encouraged to attend.
