21 Employers To Recruit at The Oklahoman Transportation Career Fair

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.

Kristi Richter is now in the Gallery’s Artist Showcase

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that artist Kristi Richter is their newest featured artist.

Jupiter, FL, USA (October 15, 2014) — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that artist Kristi Richter is their newest featured artist. Kristi will now be presented in the Gallery’s Artist Showcase section for the next month.

Kristi Richter was born and grew up in Chicago and now resides in Nashville, Tennessee. Art has always been a priority, and she owes her zealous interest due to her grandfather, who was a professional commercial artist and had a studio in Chicago. Her mother was also an artist, so she inherited talent from both sides of the family.

Kristi followed an art curriculum through high school, but it was when she attended The American Academy of Art and Chicago Academy of Fine Arts respectively, that she really started to understand her potential and how to express it. Her studies introduced her to the many facets of art such as advertising, illustration, calligraphy, photography, scratchboard, abstract, design, charcoal drawing with live models, and color schemes. Over time, she was able to recognize her weaknesses and sought ways to improve them, and she solidified her strengths.

Kristi’s favorite medium is acrylics because they blend easily, dry quickly and the colors are opulent and vibrant. Most of her work is done in acrylics and has included pet portraits, posters and advertisements that are animal-related. She has also written and illustrated a children’s book about a dog which she would like to publish.

Kristi’s definitive objective is to start a business exclusively doing pet portraits or a favorite wildlife creature rendered in acrylics, scratchboard, watercolor, abstract, and cartoon. She has designed a business card and advertising poster and her logo is “Kristi’s Kritters”. Kristi can be reached at keddywumpus@yahoo.com.
