Yesterday more than 100 of the Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency’s clients filled our headquarters to interview with 14 of Metro Atlanta’s top employers such as MARTA, Target and Aramark. Our first job fair provided these men and women with an opportunity to meet with human resource representatives from the home health, warehouse, customer service and data entry fields. Following the event we received glowing remarks from participating employers who were impressed with our clients’ resumes, ambition and appearance. The clients in attendance had recently completed ACSS’s Career Works program, which prepares adults with the skills they need to become gainfully employed – a big step in breaking the cycle of homelessness.
