Variety of Roles

The career fair is primarily for job seekers and students interested in machining, welding, robotics, logistics, warehouse operations, supply chain management, automation, maintenance, engineering, customer service, sales, and accounting.

New Vacancies

Job seekers and students will have a chance to learn more about the industry’s opportunities while potentially securing a new job. Many of the available positions do not require a college degree, and some companies are offering full benefits, signing bonuses, or opportunities for career growth.

β€œGiven the recent closures of GKN Aerospace in Hazelwood and PGP Glass in Park Hills, we saw a timely opportunity to connect job seekers with area manufacturing and distribution companies looking for talent” said Conflux Co-Learning Executive Director Matt Menietti.

Well Paid Jobs

Despite these closures, a 2020 study by the National Association of Manufacturers found United States manufacturing workers earned $92,832 on average, which included pay and benefits. Roughly 90% of these positions also offered health insurance.

Both SLATE and the St. Louis County Workforce Development will also be assisting with promoting open positions among job seekers in their network. The Missouri Job Center, as well as other training and employment partners, will be at the career fair to provide information about services, programs, courses, and other resources for job seekers and those looking for career opportunities in the industry.
