Chrisman said that typical skilled trades positions include mechanics, CDL drivers, technicians, masons, manufacturing, warehousing, welders, painters, heavy equipment operators, electricians, maintenance workers, plumbers, fabricators, glass workers, drafters, and carpenters.
In addition to area commercial businesses, CareerSource CLM staff will be on hand with information about fee-free job-placement services and training opportunities.
While advance registration is not required, those interested in fast, easy access to the job fair are encouraged to register at www.employflorida.com. Job candidates should dress appropriately and be prepared for on-the-spot job interviews.
