Calling all job seekers!

Georgia’s Own Credit Union, in partnership with Library on the Lawn, will host a free resume workshop at Woodruff Park in downtown Atlanta Aug. 5 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to support Atlantans in their efforts to secure employment. The event is called Reimagine Your 8 to 5 on 8/5, the latest initiative in Georgia’s Own’s yearlong 85 Acts of Kindness campaign.

While unemployment is at a nearly 50-year low, Georgia’s 3.9% unemployment rate remains higher than the national 3.7% average. The Georgia’s Own team looks forward to providing one-on-one consulting and free USB drives so participants can take a digital copy of their new resume with them. Library on the Lawn, an outdoor computer lab hosted by the Atlanta-Fulton County Library System, will provide Chromebooks at the event.

Through this latest act of kindness, Georgia’s Own hopes to help Atlantans looking for a change in their current job status take advantage of the excellent job market and the economic advantages of the recent federal interest rate cut from 2.25% to 2%, the first such decrease in interest rates in a decade. By moving to reduce rates, the Fed’s policymakers are attempting to reduce the risk of a recession that could cause the unemployment rate to skyrocket.

Woodruff Park is located at 91 Peachtree St. NW in Atlanta. For more information, visit
