Space Coast Job Fair and Hands-on Training

 

The Space Coast Job Fair and Hands-On Training Event will be held at the Raddison Resort at the Port in Cape Canaveral, Florida on July 26th from 9am - 4pm.

In support of OPM’s continuing effort to promote Federal hiring in areas most adversely affected by current economic conditions, the CHCO Council is supporting the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in its effort to assist aerospace workers affected by the ending of the Space Shuttle program.  We strongly encourage you to augment your current recruitment activities by participating in these efforts.

6,000 workers who stayed for the final mission - even knowing it was ending with the last Shuttle flight, will be affected by the ending of the Space Shuttle program.  Among this number are more than 700 veterans.  The Space Coast Job Fair and Hands-on Training will showcase scientists – from rocket scientists to environmental engineers – who would love the opportunity to work in agencies throughout the federal government if we can help them translate their formidable skills to the needs of federal agencies.

We also have the opportunity to hire seasoned professionals in “hard to find” skill sets – including acquisitions and procurement specialists.  Other skills include:

Engineering (e.g., Electrical, Electronic, Computer, Mechanical, Systems, Environmental)
Information Technology (e.g., Systems, Software, Programming)
Analysis (e.g., Risk Management, Program/Project Management Quality Assurance)
Technical (e.g., Electricians, Engineering/Electronics/Mechanical Technicians, Transportation Specialists, Safety Specialists, Trades)
Administrative (e.g., Security, Contracting, Logistics, Human Resources, Budget)

The Space Coast Job Fair and Hands-on Training will include exhibit booths for Federal agencies to educate job seekers on the types of job opportunities available; training to effectively apply for jobs on USAJOBS.gov; and assistance in applying for current or future open positions in the Federal Government.  For more information click here. 

IF YOU ARE A CHCO COUNCIL AGENCY WITH JOB VACANCIES THAT COULD BE FILLED AT THIS JOB FAIR, BUT HAVE NOT YET REGISTERED TO PARTICIPATE DUE TO FUNDING ISSUES, PLEASE CONTACT KATHRYN MEDINA to discuss NO LATER THAN JULY 18TH.
