Here, to talk about a great job fair coming up. Rick let me start with you, talk about the job fair and what you are looking for?
Rick Effinger, All-State Career School:
The Job Fair is held on Saturday May 21st from 10AM - 2PM, it is an opportunity for people who already have licenses or people who are looking to come into the industry, come out, talk with different companies and drivers.
And you mentioned a long list of companies that are a part of this. We will put a list of these companies on the screen, right now, but Carol I want to turn to you, talk about your company and what you folks are looking for.
We are looking for drivers who can come and help us deliver to our wonderful costumers, a lot of restaurants that a lot of our customers know like Taco Bell and Pizza Hut and a lot of those restaurants, and we offer local work for graduates of All State, unlike a lot of the other companies around.
Alright Tom let me turn to you, talk about your company, what you are looking for?
US Express is one of the largest truck carriers in the United States.
Some drivers this year for local regional over the road and dedicated opportunities. We are really excited about that.
That`s a staggering number for drivers and it kind of speaks to the fact that there is a big need for truck drivers in the country right now right?
Yes sir. This is our 29th annual job fair. WE have been doing this for a very long time and it gives people access if they have CDL or if they can come in and talk to the companies of course
There is a real need for drivers right now.
They are looking at 225 to 250 thousand drivers needed in the industry today.
Ok lets talk about specifics when and where is the job fair?
It will be on Saturday may 21st from 10am to 2pm at Lester PA at the local all state career school located near the airport. So family and friends are welcomed to come out and enjoy.
And Tom I understand there is stuff to kids to do there as well?
Absolutely we will have a lot of big rigs there that the kids can climb into and check out food prizes and games and as sorts of things are going on it`s a great event and a family event too.
Where can we go for more information?
