Job fair slated for women seeking ‘nontraditional’ jobs

Posted

UTICA — The Workforce Development Board, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Inc.’s  Women in Apprenticeship and Nontraditional Occupations  grant program is hosting a free women-focused virtual job fair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, July 27.

“The Women in Apprenticeship and Nontraditional Occupations  grant has assisted over 260 women who have shown an interest in pursuing nontraditional training and employment within IT/Cybersecurity, Advanced Manufacturing, the Trades, and more,” says Project Director Sommer Edwards.

Nontraditional occupations are defined by the U.S. Department of Labor as any industry in
which females make up 25% or less of the workforce.

WANTO serves 17 counties, including Herkimer, Lewis, Madison, and Oneida counties. Women, 18 years old and older, and employers throughout
the region are invited to register.

The job fair utilizes the virtual platform. Platform training is available before the event and training videos, training materials and support are available within the platform.
