In what is being billed as the largest general public job fair in Pittsburgh’s history, an announcement will be made soon about a tremendous opportunity for hourly workers in the Pittsburgh region. Under the coordination of the PA Careerlink and endorsed by Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato and Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, City County Career Day (or C3) is projected to have over 250 companies in attendance offering thousands of job opportunities. The main focus is on the building trades with participation from most major unions offering information on apprenticeship programs and direct employment. The event will not be limited to only building trades and will include career opportunities in most job categories. C3 will be held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center from 10AM to 3PM and also offer multiple seminars on resume writing, interviewing skills, career training advice and much more. We will post more information in the weeks to come so be sure to check back.
