A coalition of seven construction trade groups will hold job fairs across the Dakotas, looking to fill hundreds of open jobs.

Jason Ehlert (al-lert) of Fargo is President of the North Dakota State Building and Construction Trades.

He says they see a building boom in the Dakotas…

 

Ehlert says he knows of several hundred job openings right now…

 

Ehlert says the jobs they are looking to fill also pay very well…

 

 

He says applicants need to be at least eighteen years old, and technical education is a plus.

 

Ehlert says they will have open houses next month in Aberdeen, Pierre, Rapid City and Sioux Falls.
