HIWT holds Spring Job Fair
Thirty employers representing 10 different states congregated in the Career Development Area on March 7th for the Spring Job Fair. Companies that represent everything from the Pipe Trades, Sheet Metal and Iron Workers to Construction, Automotive, Aerospace, and Fabrication were represented. Employers had the opportunity to speak with and interview over 150 students; while students were able to discuss job opportunities and sell their skills to hiring managers. Several students scheduled interviews and weld tests during the job fair which resulted in them securing employment. HIWT holds three job fairs per year – March, June and September. Employers have the opportunity to come to one, two or all of them. Since students start programs and graduate each month of the year, employers have the opportunity to speak with students at different completion levels of their program. Additionally, it gives students an idea of the various opportunities in the welding field that await them when they complete their programs.
