Job fair attracts thousands
Great Dane plant manager surprised by turnout
W 121411 JOB FAIR 01
Job applicants wind around the back of Ogeechee Technical College's campus during Wednesday's Great Dane job fair. Nearly 3,500 people had filled out applications.
A job fair expected to attract 1,500 people to Ogeechee Technical College Wednesday, had already processed that many applicants by noon. By 6 p.m., 3,500 people had filled out employment applications to be part of Great Dane’s initial workforce when its 450,000-square-foot manufacturing plant opens in Statesboro early next year. “I didn’t expect this many people, obviously,” said Kevin Black, the plant’s manager.
