Upcoming Job Fairs 2024

Our job fairs feature a soft-skill class to prepare applicants for a successful interview. The class covers topics such as professional dress code, greetings, questions and answers for interviews, adaptability, and responsibility. Future hires have the opportunity to get a brief introduction from each company: who they are, payment rates, hours, and positions available. The advantage of our job fairs is that interested applicants would always have the support of our workforce staff with any future guidance needed through the hiring process. Every job applicant has the opportunity to communicate directly with the recruiting team of each hiring company.

Latino Construction Program

The Latino Construction Program (LCP) from the Spanish American Committee has helped many Spanish-speaking individuals from the Cleveland area overcome language barriers and earn more money with better jobs in construction trades. The LCP offers Hispanic and Latino individual's better opportunities in workforce development, training, and job placement. Previously, many Spanish-speaking professionals were not given many options for jobs at higher-paying development and construction companies due to language and/or cultural barriers. Not only are those we serve able to make a more livable wage, but they are in professional fields with companies that offer security and potential to further succeed and grow within their trade.
