The Roseville-based North State Building Industry Foundation will hold its first “Trade Job Fair” in seven years on Thursday at McClellan Park.
The free event, which runs from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the McClellan Conference Center at 5411 Luce Ave., is being held in conjunction with the Construction and Energy Sectors Initiative, a local collaboration that fosters workforce development services in the Sacramento region.
“It’s been a long recession for our region and our company, but we are pleased to report that things are definitely improving,” said Rick Wylie, president of Beutler Corp., one of the event participants. “We have a real need to find experienced HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) installers and plumbers, as well as eager, capable people who want to work in construction.”
Event organizers said participating employers are looking to hire about 150 people in sectors that include electrical, HVAC, plumbing, landscaping, roofing, carpentry, energy and utilities.
Job seekers will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from the Sacramento Employment and Training Agency and the Golden Sierra Job Training Agency for help on resume preparation and job interview tips. Information on construction/energy sector training offered by local community colleges and community-based organizations also will be available.
