This Just In...Career Fair In Orlando..Read Blog


Career Fair in O-Town

As we enter the last month of the year next week, over 17,000 power industry professionals will be descending upon Orlando for what is the largest power industry trade show and conference in the world; POWER-GEN International.

And I’ll be there too! The three inches of snow that fell outside my home last night is only further motivation to head south.

We will be hosting our 4th annual PennEnergyJOBS Career Fair at next week’s event with 25 employers exhibiting in the recruitment pavilion. Here is a list of the companies that will be present:

AMEC APS Bechtel
CMI Energy Day & Zimmermann Doosan
Dresser Rand Dynegy GE Energy
Hitachi Mitsubishi Power N-Core Energy
NESC Orion South Pacific Gas & Electric
Shaw Siemens Stanley Consultants

Aside from the droves of industry professionals in attendance, what truly makes this career fair unique is that over 90% of the attendees are currently employed!
