The Building Industry in Oregon is experiencing a worker shortage. Oregon Tradeswomen’s annual Career Fair offers career seekers an unparalleled opportunity to learn about and access opportunities to earn while they learn without the debt of college.
This experiential event offers an introduction to the jobs, skills, and benefits of a career in the skilled construction trades. Participants have the opportunity to learn skills in hands-on workshops, try out tools, meet employers, meet successful tradeswomen, make things to take home, and find out about career training opportunities.
Past workshops have included: Wire a Light and Switch, Climb a Utility Pole, Operate Heavy Equipment, Learn the Basics of Welding, Build a Birdhouse, Learn about Solar and Wind Power, Green Roofing, Green Carpeting techniques, and many more.
