Bates Technical College, Sound Outreach and WorkSource Pierce are sponsoring the PIERCE COUNTY JOB EXPO on June 26th from 3 PM to 7 PM.
The Pierce County Job Expo is going to be next Wednesday! Over 30 employers and 10+ apprenticeship opportunities will be in attendance. Many of these employers have opportunities that pay a living wage, or opportunities that can lead to a living wage. The fields include healthcare, construction, apprenticeships/trades, tech, public defense and public administration. This JOB FAIR is FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC. This is a great opportunity for you to recharge your career.
*UPDATE* We have just received confirmation that there will be on the spot interviews and contingent offers. Some of the employers include General Plastics, Valley Cities, and Goodwill (assistant managerial/managerial openings). There are other employers who will be doing on the spot hires.
