A local staffing agency is hosting a skilled trades job fair on behalf of 50 employers next week.

Express Employment Professionals of Grand Rapids, or Express Pros, will host the career fair for skilled trades and advanced manufacturing candidates from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., July 24, at its office in Wyoming, 1760 44th St. SW, Suite 10.

Express Pros is recruiting on behalf of 50 manufacturers to fill more than 75 positions.

“The goal of this job fair is to help match candidates with great career opportunities, but it is also to raise awareness in the Grand Rapids community of the great jobs available in skilled trades and advanced manufacturing,” said Janis Petrini, owner-operator at Express Pros Grand Rapids.

Candidates should bring a resume if they have one. The dress code is casual yet presentable.

All job openings are for full-time, direct-hire or contract-to-hire positions with pay rates ranging from $15-$30 per hour.
