Caribbean Area Staff Promote NRCS Careers at PR College of Engineers Job Fair
Caribbean Area NRCS Civil Rights Advisory Committee (CRAC) members, Eng. Lydia Collazo (Federal Women’s & LGBT Special Emphasis Program Manager - SEPM) and Luis García (Veterans SEPM), spent a recent Saturday encouraging PR College of Engineering students to consider a career in NRCS. The pair participated in the College’s Third Annual Job Fair on February 22, 2014 in San Juan to promote careers in NRCS and other Federal agencies.
Over 140 professional engineers (PEs), professional land surveyors, engineers in training (EITs) or surveyors in training, and engineering college students received NRCS career and program information, and learned how to seek jobs on USAJobs.gov. Minorities reached during the event included: Hispanic women, Hispanic men, veterans, and possibly LGBTs.
As part of the Job Fair, NRCS staff participated in an interview aired by Radio Isla 1320-AM. NRCS reps told the audience that NRCS – as well as many other Federal Government Agencies – was constantly hiring engineers and surveyors. Staff described how to access the USAJobs website and shared valuable information about NRCS programs, services and career opportunities.
The job fair was organized by CIAPR President, Eng. Edgar Rodríguez, with the assistance of personnel from Linda Corujo Retirement Center, to provide employment opportunities to engineers and surveyors from Puerto Rico. Twenty booths representing local and international companies such as: Johnson & Johnson, DASA Group, Invid, Johnson Control, Honeywell, CSA, Snelling, CTS, Impra, JC Automation and Experis PR provided numerous career opportunities to fair attendees.
