More than twenty construction firms will be represented at the Construction Career Jobs Fair on Saturday at the Wichita Workforce Center.
Angie Duntz with the Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas says the goal is to connect the companies with qualified job seekers.
"The top five positions that companies will be hiring for on Saturday are the construction laborer, carpenter, concrete finisher, heavy equipment operator and diesel mechanic but those are not the only jobs that will be available," she says.
Duntz says jobs seekers need to come prepared and dressed for an interview. Participants will also need to bring their resume because companies will be looking to hire.
Companies attending the job fair include Cornejo & Sons, Crossland Construction and Eby Construction.
The job fair will take place on Saturday, March 4 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Wichita Workforce Center, 2021 N. Amidon Ave., Suite 100.
