It’s a job seeker’s market, according to a local NC Works official who announced a couple of upcoming opportunities that could lead to employment.
Desiree Brooks, business services manager of the Workforce Development Board of the Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments, said participants interested in work at Altec can register for an event that will begin at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25.
Altec, which builds bucket trucks, has a facility in Creedmoor in southern Granville County.
A second opportunity scheduled for Thursday is the Triangle Virtual Regional IT Career Expo, Brooks said. A group of area workforce development groups is hosting this event, which will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
There are many opportunities in the Kerr-Tar region for jobs in the IT field, she said. A job may not be working for an IT company, but there are businesses hiring for IT-related jobs, she said. “We’re all coming together for a common need,” she said.
We all share the same goals – to improve workforce, not just in our area, but across North Carolina,” she said.
This virtual career fair is for employers who are looking for workers as well as for job seekers, she said. Register for this event online at events.kerrtarworks.com or phone 919.693.2686 to get assistance or to learn more about either event.
