These past couple of months, we have been attending career fairs, recruiting young people to make a career choice working for Thompson Electric. We have attended the career fairs for Mitchell Technology Institute in Mitchell, SD, Northwest Iowa Community College in Sheldon, IA and Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, NE. with Western Iowa Tech in Sioux City, IA and Southeast Community College in Sioux Falls, SD still to come this spring. We have found success with young people, when we showcase Thompson Electric and all of the benefits of making a career in the electrical industry.
This is the 3rd year Thompson Electric has participated in these career fairs and they have been very beneficial in recruiting young people to make a career at Thompson Electric. There are a lot of young talented people out there and we need to continue to be proactive in recruiting and retaining these individuals. They are our future and our future is now.
