A Look Into Rosedale Tech’s Recent Job FairRosedale Technical College provides top-notch education and training to adult students of all ages. We also believe in preparing and supporting students during their next career step: the job search. Rosedale holds several job fairs each year to match up employers with students who are ready to begin their careers. (KDKA TV came to our last job fair—you can view the video here.) Each student takes a career preparation course that teaches them how to write a resume and cover letter, prepare for an interview, choose from job offers, and follow up with potential employers. As the need for skilled workers rises, so do the numbers of employers who attend our job fairs.
Skilled Trades Job Market Continues to GrowThe job market for skilled trade workers is opening up for several reasons:
- Skilled technicians will be getting ready to retire. This will leave more than 600,000 trade jobs vacant.
- The recent natural gas expansion in our region has led to an employment boom within the past five years. Marcellus Shale industry jobs continue to grow year-over-year.
- The science and technology workforce is expected to grow throughout the end of the decade. This means that 300,000 positions in Pennsylvania and 270,000 jobs in Ohio are being added to the job rolls.
