As the construction industry has begun its recovery from the downturn one of the most daunting challenges facing subcontractors is the ability to find qualified workers.
During the depths of the recession many workers looked for employment in other industries. Others simply left the state. As the volume of work and the need for workers has increased over the last year, the number of people willing to fill those positions has not.
But for every problem there is a solution.
The Nevada Subcontractors Association and Project 150 are teaming up to hold a Job Fair Saturday May 31, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the Clark County Government Center (500 S. Grand Central Parkway). The NSA/Project 150 Career & Employment Fair offers a unique opportunity for employers to connect with motivated young people eager to learn a skill and earn a living.
Employers need to register to participate. Registration form available by clicking here. Don’t miss this opportunity!
If your company is growing and you have openings to fill, the NSA/Project 150 Job Fair is the perfect occasion to do it. Even if you’re happy where you are, this could be the chance to discover the hidden gem, the missing piece of the puzzle that completes your organization and helps you move forward into the future.
The construction labor shortage is not limited to Nevada. Eye on Housing, a publication of the National Association of Home Builders, reports there were 143,000 unfilled construction jobs across the nation in December 2013 and that number had increased by more than 50% during 2013.
Don’t get caught short-handed! All across the country, construction firms are searching for motivated workers. At the NSA/Project 150 Career & Employment Fair, we can help your company find them!
