A job fair at the Carroll County Courthouse will mean jobs for about 100 people in the new year.
Diversco Integrated Services will hold the job fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, in the second-floor courtroom.
Carroll County Judge-Executive Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson said the jobs are full-time positions on the North American Stainless property that include vacation, holidays and comprehensive benefits.
A flier for the job fair says positions include housekeeping, packing and materials handlers, crane operators and tow-motor operators.
Tomlinson said some 40 to 50 of the positions are expected to go to new hires, while the remaining jobs will likely be filled by workers who are now providing these services as contractors.
Workers are not required to have completed high school, he said, but they must pass a safety test, chemical screening and background check.
Tomlinson said the jobs range in pay from $8 to $15 per hour.
He is excited to start the year ahead with a job fair.
“I think we are going to see some more this year,” Tomlinson said. “I’m optimistic.”
The trend in Kentucky shows the unemployment rate dropping and companies expanding. “It’s a good deal,” he said.
