SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Two big hiring events are happening Wednesday, Feb. 13 in Savannah.

National Career Fairs is hosting a career fair at the Hilton Garden Inn. Some companies expected to attend are New York Life, U.S. Auto Sales, and Two Men and a Truck, according to NCF’s website.

If you are looking for a job, GSU Armstrong’s director of career and professional development says always dress a step above the job requirement and be prepared to brag about yourself because companies want to know what you can bring to the table. Also, come with a resume. If you need help creating one, there are various examples on the internet but avoid using a template and filling in the blanks.

The Savannah Career Fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Midtown Savannah (5711 Abercorn St, Savannah, GA 31405).

Another big hiring event is also happening on Wednesday just down the street. Lowe’s is looking to hire. The retailer is hosting its annual National Hiring Day on Feb. 13 and hopes to fill hundreds of open spots in the Savannah area.

Lowe's hopes to fill around 50,000 spots nationwide, some of those spots are right here in Savannah.
