Job seekers can connect with companies through a virtual job fair without leaving home.

The mission is to contribute to the economic growth of DeKalb County by meeting the needs of employers and job seekers with resources offered in a true one-stop environment. There is a quick link on the homepage of the website as well as a drop-down under the Residents section for “Job Openings in DeKalb County”.
