If you're still looking for a job in this slowly recovering economy, it might be worthwhile to take the trip to Greenville Technical College on June 20.
Greenville Tech will hold a Manufacturing Job and Training Fair next Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at McAlister Square. Thirty employers will be on hand including BMW, Bosch Rexroth and GE to allow attendees to apply on the spot for available openings.
Greenville Tech will have advisors and financial aid representatives on site to talk to attendees about training should special skills be required for some of the openings. Accelerated training opportunities are now open for enrollment. These programs allow a student to begin in August and be trained to qualify for positions by December. There are also non-credit options through the college’s Corporate and Career Development division including mechatronics systems and manufacturing production technician, a curriculum based on manufacturing skill standards council guidelines.
