MREA to host Clean Energy Career Fair
The Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) is hosting a Clean Energy Career Fair during the 32nd Annual Energy Fair on Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June 24, according to a recent press release.
To address the need for skilled professionals in the renewable energy industry, the career fair aims to connect job seekers with companies looking to hire. Entrance is free for all job seekers and potential students with general admission to The Energy Fair.
In 2021, 89% of solar firms reported difficulty finding qualified applicants. The installation sector faced the highest level of difficulty, with 39% of firms finding it “very difficult” to find qualified applicants.
Job seekers will have the chance to network with industry professionals and participate in career-focused workshops. Individuals already working in the clean energy field can take advantage of the Energy Professional Continuing Education (CE) Workshop series and earn valuable continuing education credits.
The Clean Energy Career Fair will take place within the fairgrounds in Custer from 5–7 p.m. Prior to the event, the MREA encourages job seekers to explore training resources online.
