DENVER, Colorado — July 9, 2015 — On Wednesday, June 24th, Independent Electrical Contractors Rocky Mountain (IECRM) a school for electricians (www.iecrm.org) opened its doors to host the third annual job fair for the energy, electrical and construction industry. The positions available for hire were multiple and diverse, from entry-level to experienced, office administration to field worker; there was truly something for everyone. Job seekers, career changers, and veterans of all ages and backgrounds were invited to explore the opportunity for professional growth and many of them left the event with job offers or interviews. The job fair was hosted by IECRM and sponsored by Premier Sponsor, Allcable, Inc. (www.allcableco.com). Allcable services the industries of Aerospace, Construction, Contractors, Installers, MRO, OEM, Cable Assembly, Contract Manufacturing, Military, Hospital, Government Agencies, Integrators, Security, Sound Application, Campus and the Theatre/Arts and Consumer Applications.
“With the construction industry booming in Colorado, and the new electrical code standards being upgraded, there is a high demand for workers in all positions in the energy, electrical and construction industry. It feels great to help connect job seekers to quality employers and vice versa, and to witness the positive difference in the lives of people,” said IECRM Marketing Coordinator, Katie Shobe. “At least one company hired seven people on-the-spot and several candidates are still being considered!”
The recent surge in construction projects, not only left many Colorado and Wyoming contractors scrambling to find enough apprentices and licensed electricians but also created a demand for many other supporting positions in the construction industry. IECRM’s third annual Job Fair focused on the effort to fill the not only “skilled labor” gap within the Rocky Mountain energy, electrical, and construction industry, but also to help fill several other supporting positions.
IECRM promoted the event with billboards, online advertising, community outreach, and with the assistance of the Denver Office of Economic Development, multiple Colorado workforce centers, and Emily Griffith Technical College.
All of the remaining job openings from the event can now be found on the IECRM website at www.iecrm.org/jobs. Additionally, IECRM is hosting a second Energy Industry Job Fair in Loveland on Tuesday, September 30th. To learn more about IECRM, please visit www.IECRM.org or call (303) 853-4886.
