Eastern Kentucky residents looking for work in the commercial trucking industry will have the chance to apply and be interviewed for jobs at an upcoming career fair in Hazard.
Hiring Our Miners Everyday (H.O.M.E) will host the event on May 6 beginning at 9 a. m. at the Kentucky Career Center JobSight, 412 Roy Campbell Drive, Hazard.
Representatives from several employers will be on hand, including Averitt, JB Hunt, Schneider, and Summit Trucking.
Most jobs do not require relocation, and include a starting salary of $50,000 per year along with paid training and other benefits.
This career fair is for both experienced commercial drivers and those interested in a career in the trucking industry. Financial help in obtaining a commercial driver’s license (CDL) is available for clients enrolled in the H.O.M.E. program, while some companies can also offer assistance.
The career fair will begin with company presentations at 9 a.m., after which jobseekers can fill out applications and learn more about the companies on hand.
