New Company in Lynn Haven Aggressively Looking for Employees

General Dynamics hopes to eventually employ as many as 1,600 workers when the operation up to full speed.

The corporation is opening a call center to handle medicare and medicaid issues.

Workforce Services is working with General Dynamics to find employees.

"Right now, they're really ramping up and trying to find people to fill their positions," said Maria Goodwin, the Director of Workforce Services. "They have a variety of positions available, from customer service representatives to HR positions, to manager and supervisor positions."

Workforce and General Dynamics will be sponsoring a series of job fairs to find workers.

The first will be next Tuesday, July 30 from 9am-1pm at the Workforce Center.

That first one will be followed by job fairs every Monday and Tuesday in August, from 9am-1pm on Mondays and 12pm-5pm on Tuesdays.

"They're being very aggressive with their job fairs that they're holding here, so that tends for me to believe they're really looking to hire a lot of employees in a short amount of time," said Goodwin.

If you are interested in applying for a position, remember to treat the job fair like a job interview.

Bring your resume and references and dress to impress.

Goodwin added that General Dynamics is especially looking for people with customer service or human resources backgrounds and experience.
