FULTON, NY – If you’ve ever considered a career in passenger transportation and would welcome the opportunity to work for one of Oswego County’s largest employers, you won’t want to miss Oswego County Opportunities’ Transportation Services Job Fair.
Scheduled for April 26 from 3 to 7 p.m., the Transportation Services Job Fair will be held at OCO’s main offices at 239 Oneida St.
According to Jo-Lyn Phillips, human resources generalist with OCO, the Transportation Services Job Fair is the first of its kind for the agency.
“While we have hosted numerous job fairs in the past, this is the first time that we have ever held one specifically for Transportation Services. What’s unique about this job fair is that people will have the opportunity to receive extensive training at no expense to themselves. OCO will provide all necessary training so that upon completion the successful candidates will receive their commercial driver’s license. It’s a rare opportunity to begin a career in this field and receive complete on the job training,” said Phillips.
Those attending OCO’s Transportation Services Job Fair will be given the opportunity to meet with a recent successful trainee who will share their perspective on the training process, discuss job opportunities, and answer any questions the candidates may have. Afterward each candidate will be given the chance to meet with a hiring supervisor for a face-to-face initial interview.
“This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in earning their commercial driver’s license free of charge and begin a rewarding career with OCO Transportation Services. OCO pays for the training, the testing, CDL renewals, even the uniforms! Trainees can take comfort in knowing there is employment waiting once they have received their commercial driver’s license. Who could ask for more?” said Phillips.
A private, non-profit agency, OCO touches the lives of more than 30,000 people each year through more than 50 programs operating in more than 80 locations throughout Oswego County.
The agency, which is a United Way of Greater Oswego County member, employs more than 650 people and has more than 1,200 highly valued volunteers.
