Though the unemployment rate in Colorado is at its lowest since January 2009 (6.9% as of April 2013), Colorado energy and electrical companies are struggling to find, and hire, skilled workers.

This Energy Industry Job Fair is IECRM’s short-term solution to solve this skilled labor shortage. IECRM already pursues a long-term strategy, in that it currently educates nearly 600 apprentices annually, preparing the next generations of electricians to become leaders in their professions.

Companies hiring at the Energy Industry Job Fair include several energy and construction contractors, construction suppliers and manufacturers, RTD’s Workforce Initiative Now  (offering careers in the transportation and construction industries), Veterans Green Jobs (offering green sector employment opportunities for veterans), and many other local companies.

Companies will be hiring for electrical apprentices with little or some field experience, licensed Journeymen electricians, sales staff, office support, and many other positions.
