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.”

·        Architecture & Construction

·        Arts, A/V & Communications

·        Automotive, Collision Repair & HD Diesel

·        Aviation Maintenance

·        Bioscience & Environmental Technology
