 Recruiting and Hiring

Our partnership with The Middle Georgia Innovation Project will enhance opportunities for variety of employment opportunities for a Company and their spouses.  We have been preparing Central Georgia for growth and job demand for several years.  We are ready!  

Helping a Company to find the best and brightest workforce is a top priority. We pledge to take our recruitment assistance one step further and focus on the entire family unit.  A customized website for spouses and dependents of a Company will be developed providing access to job openings in Middle Georgia.  The service we will offer will be personalized to each individual with an opportunity to find jobs that fit their interests and skill sets and a pathway for accessing additional training and education if needed.  Coupled with the online platform will be a response team to offer more one-on-one counseling and guidance on needs from housing, to education to health care and beyond. Our goal is to make all feel "at home" as quickly as possible.

The economic developers across the 11-county region are members of a proactive group named the Middle Georgia Economic Alliance (MGEA.)  The group has been working together as a collaborative for the past 15 years. Workforce development has become a focus for their organization and organizations across the nation that are in the business of recruiting new companies and responding to the needs of existing companies in their communities. For this reason, the economic developers are working closely to enhance the relationships between their educational institutions and local industries to communicate the needs of employers and provide relevant career pathways for students. A regional job portal, MGEA Works, is available to assist employers and job seekers to better connect.
