PUEBLO - Manufacturers are hiring in Southern Colorado. Many of them, including the new pewag chain company in Pueblo were busy recruiting for open positions at a job fair Firday at Pueblo Community College.
The fair was put together by the college's Department of Advanced Manufacturing Technology. Department Chair Jamie Page said she works with local companies to ensure their students have the skills employers are looking for when they graduate.
"They help us determine our curriculum," Page said. "They help us tweak our program so that we're training exactly what we need to train so that our students get a good start."
Between 50 and 100 students are graduated this month from her department with degrees in Welding, Machining, and Civil Engineering Technologies among others.
