FPTC to hold Corrections Job Fair

The GEO Group, Inc. in Graceville is hiring correctional officers, and Florida Panhandle Technical College is sponsoring a Job Fair to assist that process. Visit the Criminal Justice Building on the FPTC campus January 18, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to apply.

“Requirements are tough,” says Greg Hutching, director of Public Safety programs at FPTC. “You will need a driver license, Social Security card, birth certificate, high school diploma (or equivalent), Military DD-214 (if applicable), past 5 years of work history, past 10 years of residence history and 5 references.”

“Sound tough?” asks Corrections instructor Joe Rozier. “That’s because it’s a tough job. But Corrections is a great career, with growth potential and job security, insurance, competitive salary, uniforms provided, career advancement and paid time off.”
