Career fair for employers interested in hiring people laid off by the V.C. Summer Nuclear Power Station

Earlier this week SCANA and Santee Cooper, partners in the expansion of the V.C. Summer Nuclear Power Station in Fairfield County, announced they have abandoned the project and will lay off 5,600 workers.  Most of the workers are highly-skilled construction workers with skills that may translate to home building and related trades.

If you are an employer looking for available talent, SC Works Greater Upstate, Spartanburg Small Business Development Center, and SC Works Midlands will host a Trade Skills Career Fair:

  • When: Tuesday, August 22, 2017, 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. (employer set up begins at 9 a.m.)
  • Where: Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church Life Center, 195 Amicks Ferry Road, Chapin, SC 29036

The purpose of this event is to assist employers who have an interest in hiring employees affected by this layoff.  If you are an employer with positions immediately available to be filled, consider participating in this career fair. A limited number of tables are available for employers to participate.
