Unions holding job fair for electricians on Thursday

Two unions are hosting a job fair for journeyman electricians at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Concord on Thursday .

The event is being conducted by The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). All are hiring exclusively for journeyman electrician positions.

Five employers, who are local electrical contractors, will be at the event. They will conduct personal interviews for positions based in Concord and Cabarrus County, the unions said. Candidates can learn about open positions, along with career-growth opportunities and benefits. On-the-spot job offers may be made and candidates can walk out with a job from the interview.

Resumes can be brought but are not required. Attendees can sign up for membership of NECA and IBEW at the location. Interested candidates may RSVP to
