Women in Trades Career Fair coming this week

The largest nontraditional career fair of its kind, the Women in the Trades Career Fair, is put on by Oregon Tradeswomen Inc.

The fair includes a middle school day from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, May 8, and a high school day 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday, May 9.

The careers for women day will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at 16021 Airport Way, at the National Electrical Contractors Association and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Training Center.

By attracting more women to the trades, organizers and participants aim to address the imminent gap in the labor force that will be created following record levels of upcoming retirements of skilled trades workers.
