Companies looking for drivers, mechanics and dispatchers.
Oklahoma City, OK, USA (October 15, 2014) — On Saturday October 18, 2014 The Oklahoman Newspaper will be holding its first ever Transportation Career Fair with twenty one top employers in attendance recruiting for drivers, mechanics and dispatchers. The transportation industry has more than 300,000 opportunities available in the US today. Oklahoma City is a major transportation hub.
Nancy Simoneau is the event coordinator. “This is such an exciting career opportunity. We have some of the biggest names in the industry exhibiting. Stevens Trucking for example is one of the top companies that offers paid training for Drivers. These employers are looking for local, regional and OTR Drivers as well as Owner Operators. This is a great opportunity to come and talk to multiple recruiters in one setting,” she said.
Forbe’s Magazine recently reported that the transportation industry represents the greatest employment opportunity in the country today and salaries have never been higher.
“It is a common misconception that jobs in this industry are tough to get and all driving jobs are OTR or long haul. While there are a number of good positions in the OTR category and many candidates find that appealing, there are also just as many local driving jobs and positions in support services,” noted Sela Rodriguez, Vice-President at USTruckerjobs.com, a sponsor of the event.
The Career Fair will be held at the Plaza Mayor at the Crossroads of I 35 and I 240 in Oklahoma City from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
