The Milwaukee Bucks are joining forces with Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs for a Workforce Development Jobs Informational Session on Thursday, March 9, at the Hillside Resource Center, 1452 N. 7th St.

The session will begin at 5:30 p.m., and prospective attendees should RSVP to WisconsinESC.com/Careers. Light refreshments will be provided.

Alderwoman Coggs said the Bucks arena project and other development activity in the city are providing a significant number of job opportunities for individuals, and next week’s info session “is a prime opportunity to learn more about how to access the growing jobs pipeline” in Milwaukee.

“The development and construction momentum we are seeing right now in the city is offering a unique window of opportunity for starting a new career or learning a trade,” she said. “An important first step for anyone interested in having a chance of getting one of the jobs associated with the arena project or other developments is to attend an informational session like the one at Hillside on March 9, and I strongly encourage interested individuals to make plans to be there.”

The session will include remarks by Alderwoman Coggs and Bucks Senior Vice-President Alex Lasry. Attendees will also be able to register for SkillSmart’s online job portal to access opportunities in construction and other jobs, and WRTP/Big Step will also be on-site to schedule Residential Preference Program (RPP) appointments and to certify qualified individuals.
