AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - If you’re looking for a job, there’s some hiring going in in the next few days.

Here’s a look at hiring events:

Goodwill job fair

Goodwill’s Augusta Job Connection Career Center will hold a career fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday at the Snelling Center, 3165 Washington Road.

The job fair is free to job seekers.

This career fair will bring together employers and applicants while highlighting the programs available through the Job Connection.

More than a dozen employers and community resources will be on site to provide information about current job openings in the CSRA.

Employers and community resource partners participating in the job fair include Amazon, Augusta University, Augusta Youth Development Campus, O’Charley’s, Richmond County School System, Maxim Healthcare, and Goodwill Industries.

Last year, Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and the CSRA proudly provided career services to nearly 10,000 individuals and helped find employment for nearly 4,000.

Food Lion

Each of Food Lion’s more than 1,100 stores, including several across the CSRA, will host open interviews Aug. 24, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Applicants can simply walk into their nearest Food Lion during this time and meet with a member of the store leadership team to discuss available opportunities at that store. A similar hiring event Food Lion hosted in July resulted in the hiring of more than 8,000 associates.

The positions available vary by store; however, they may include a mix of full-time, part-time and seasonal positions in roles and departments across the store. The positions offer competitive wages and flexible scheduling opportunities.

A list of all Food Lion locations can be found at Candidates unable to attend the hiring event and still interested in applying for a position at their local Food Lion can also visit to view many of the available positions.
