The Connecticut Technical Education and Career System (CTECS) will hold a job fair for experienced tradespeople interested in pursuing a career in teaching. The fair will take place on Wed., June 24, 2019, from 4 to 7 p.m. at H.C. Wilcox Technical High School, 298 Oregon Rd., Meriden, CT.
“The goal of the event is to encourage skilled tradespeople to consider a career that contributes towards building the next generation of Connecticut’s workforce,” said Dr. Niki Menounos, CTECS Assistant Superintendent. “There is a large nationwide skills gap, with more positions available than workers to fill them. Technical high schools, and their expert instructors, are part of the solution to this problem.”
Individuals with 8 or more years of experience in the following fields are encouraged to attend:
· Architecture & Construction
· Arts, A/V & Communications
· Automotive, Collision Repair & HD Diesel
· Aviation Maintenance
· Bioscience & Environmental Technology
· Culinary & Hospitality
· Hairdressing & Cosmetology
· Health Technology

This no-cost event is open to the public. Job-seekers will have the opportunity to speak with trade-area experts about making a career change into the teaching field.
