2,000 Immediate Openings Offered at Tennessee Career Centers
 
NASHVILLE- Tennessee Career Centers are announcing the availability of more than 2,000 area jobs to assist in the cleanup and restoration of flood-damaged properties. The jobs are mostly temporary, do not require experience, and offer pay rates averaging $8-10 per hour.
 
“These jobs provide opportunities for people to help with projects that are important to communities working to clean up and rebuild,” said Labor Commissioner James Neeley. “This obviously is tough work; however, we’ve received calls from all over the state from motivated individuals who are looking for ways to help in the clean-up effort as well as earn an immediate income.”
 
The recent flooding has resulted in demand for a wide range of workers including general laborers, movers, plumbers, electricians and carpenters. Tennessee Career Centers take job orders directly from employers and screen prospective workers at no charge. In the last 12 months, the Tennessee Career Center system has served approximately 523,000 job seekers with more than 48,000 job listings.

Jobs can be found on the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development’s Internet site at www.tn.gov/labor-wfd or viewed at any Tennessee Career Center. Most applications must be completed in person at the Tennessee Career Center, or applicants will be directed to the proper contact with the employer. Applicants should bring identification such as driver’s license or social security card.
