“These tend to be very popular events because it’s with the actual employer, not just a staffing agency,” said Keri Aaver, the center’s director. “When its an actual employer that’s there, they have positions and are trying to fill them, so if you come in and have the qualifications and the right attitude and are ready to interview, chances are you’re going to walk out of there with a job or move on to the next step in the hiring process.”
Immediately available positions include pipeline rig-welders, layout pipefitters, equipment operators, hydro crane operators, dirt operators, craft construction helpers, laborers and fire watch, according to a city of Santa Clarita news release.
Applicants must be at least 18 years old, eligible to work in the United States and have experience in oil fields, oil and gas terminals, oil refineries and/or industrial construction. A completed safety skills certification is preferred, but not required.
Military veterans who have construction experience during their time of service or otherwise are encouraged to apply, Aaver said.
Event officials are advising job seekers to dress professionally, have multiple copies of their resume and bring a state ID like a driver’s license, as well as a social security card or passport.
Attendees will be given approximately 20 minutes to fill out applications, and a short introduction to the company will be given followed by group interviews for qualified candidates.
“When they come to a recruitment event, they’re actually given the opportunity to interview for the position they want,” Aaver said. “There’s no waiting period where they submit an application and wait for a phone call. When we do a recruitment event, they’re actually connecting to the employers.”
Onsite background checks and drug screenings may also be conducted for applicants who best meet the qualifications of the employer, event officials said.
The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on May 29 at the College of the Canyons University Center, Suite 250, on the Valencia campus.
