CareerSource Palm Beach County is holding several job fairs over the next month that will allow Palm Beach County residents to meet with area employers with immediate job openings to fill, as well as training providers to get started on a high-demand, high-paying job in construction/building trades.
These events are open to all Palm Beach County residents and there is no charge to attend.
Participants can also find out how to qualify for training scholarships to learn or upgrade job skills. The events are jointly hosted by CareerSource Palm Beach County, the Palm Beach County government, the School District of Palm Beach County and the Palm Beach County League of Cities.
Employers will be interviewing candidates and hiring onsite to fill hundreds of immediate construction/building trade job openings in Palm Beach County.
Construction/building trade jobs are in high demand. Job growth in this sector soared 8.3 percent over the past year in Palm Beach County. In addition, demand for these jobs is being fueled by an estimated $2.7 billion in countywide infrastructure improvement projects taking place over the next decade.
Upcoming events take place at the Delray Beach library (100 West Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach) on Tuesday, June 27 from 5 to 7 p.m.; at Palm Beach State College (4200 North Congress Ave., ETA Building 103, Lake Worth) on Tuesday, July 11 from 5 to 7 p.m.; and at the Lake Shore Civic Center (1224 SW Avenue E Place, Belle Glade) on Wednesday, July 12 from 1 to 4 p.m.
