Many of the major employers have been in Athens for a long time, some for a very long time.  A big reason for that is their valuable, skilled, reliable and dedicated workforce that has also been with them for a long time, some for a very long time.  

Workers in Athens-Clarke County have access to job search tools and over 100 resources from a diverse system of local providers who strive to guide all towards a shared prosperity in our community.  We are fortunate to have many resources in place already to help cope with challenges such as COVID-19 and other events that normally strain employers, workers, educators and supply chains.  The people of Athens come together in many ways to assist and guide those needing help.  Over the decades, this has continued to sustain and grow our beloved community.
