Recruitment Fair: Construction Worker

 October 20, 2020
 6:00-8:00 PM

 

Please see attached the Recruitment Fair flyer for construction workers.  For this initial pilot, Groundswell Startups is working with two companies: Boys Electric and Brevard Windows and Doors. As part of the pilot, Boys Electric will hire 2 candidates and Brevard Windows and Doors will hire 1 candidate. Upon success of the pilot program, after the 90-day OJT, Groundswell will pick up more employer clients (construction, hotel and electric career fields to start) and expand their resources to recruit larger numbers of prospective workers. This is a workforce development initiative for South Brevard residents only.
