More than 40 employers are at the fair, hiring for jobs ranging from cashiers to engineers. More information is at atljobfair.eventbrite.com. The job fair page also includes tips for job seekers, such as practicing at home before going to the job fair and keeping a list of companies contacted there.

The airport typically holds its job fairs in the spring, but this fall job fair is intended to drive hiring ahead of the holiday season.

Parking at the event will cost $5. Those attending can also take MARTA to the airport, then transfer to the airport’s free SkyTrain to get to the Georgia International Convention Center.
