Milwaukee/NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry), the area’s leading home improvement and remodeling industry resource, will host a job fair on the second floor of the State Fair Park Exposition Center, 8200 W. Greenfield Ave. in West Allis, on Thurs., Feb. 12, from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Held in conjunction with the association’s charitable arm, the Milwaukee/NARI Foundation, Inc., more than 25 NARI are participating and looking for workers. The exhibitors are in a wide range of specialties within the home improvement and remodeling industry, including design/build, window and door installation, roofing, siding, cabinetry, plaster and stucco repair, landscaping, plumbing, and security.
Exhibitors will be seeking those that have experience in home improvement and remodeling or a related field that would transfer to the industry to work in a variety of positions, including carpenters, installers, service technicians, project management, and warehouse staff. Those willing to learn about skilled trade opportunities are also encouraged to attend.
Employment seekers are encouraged to bring resumes to share with exhibitors, as well as contact information for references. Exhibitors will be identified by company name and the type of position(s) the company is looking to fill.
“In addition to raising awareness about career opportunities in the home improvement and remodeling industry to develop a strong workforce and ensure growth of the profession in southeastern Wisconsin, we are seeking people to work immediately for association members,” said Bingo Emmons, CR, CRPM, a Milwaukee/NARI board member, chair of the association’s Workforce Development Committee, and owner of Creative Construction of Wisconsin, a job fair exhibitor. “Our members are busy and need to bring on quality people to complete the work that they have scheduled now, as well as what will continue to come in from those looking to enhance their home and living environment. While we prefer to hire those that have experience in the jobs that are available, our members are willing to train if people show attributes that demonstrate that they would be an asset to the company.”
“Milwaukee/NARI and its members provide guidance and leadership for those wishing to explore and experience various industry careers,” said Tom Callen, Milwaukee/NARI Foundation president and Workforce Development Committee vice-chair. “To fit with the companies that are members of the association, we want to attract individuals that conduct themselves ethically and with professionalism, those who are looking to make home improvement and remodeling a career and not just a job.”
Milwaukee/NARI, with more than 740 members, has been promoting ethical conduct, professionalism, and sound business practices in the remodeling industry for more than 50 years. Consumers should have complete peace of mind when selecting a Milwaukee/NARI contractor for their home improvement project.
