Project Purpose

Presented by Imagine Thomasville, in partnership with New Hire Solutions and Southern Regional Technical College, Project Purpose is a workforce initiative focused on connecting businesses (employers) to job seekers and students. This will be our 2nd annual community-wide job fair that will take place at the Deep South Fairgrounds located at 2057 GA-122, Thomasville, GA 31757 on February 16th, 2023. Students will be bussed in from each school system in Thomasville-Thomas County from 8:00AM-12:00 PM and Job Seekers will be invited to attend from 12:30-3:00 PM. Businesses are asked to provide an elevated experience that will take this career fair to the next level to showcase their work as a purpose, not a place.
