The Welding Job Fair is presented by Marion Technical College in partnership with the American Welding Society – North Florida, Mid-FL Regional Manufacturers Association, Ocala Metro Chamber of Commerce and Economic Partnership, and CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion.

MTC is also partnering with CareerSource CLM to host the CDL Community Job Fair on Wednesday, February 8, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Multiple businesses will be recruiting Class A and Class B commercial drivers, along with recent graduates, to drive in and around Marion County.

The following businesses plan on attending the CDL Community Job Fair: ABCO; Brook Ledge Horse Transportation; Custom Window Systems; Dwight Littlefield Trucking; Leopard Medical Transport; McLane Company; Schneider; and ZCO Carrier. In addition, MTC representatives will be in attendance to help those who are interested in enhancing their CDL education.

Both job fairs will be held at Marion Technical College, which is located at 1014 SW 7th Road in Ocala. There is no cost to attend either job fair and the events are open to the public. While registration is encouraged by CareerSource CLM, it is not required.

Job seekers who are interested in attending either event should bring printed copies of their resume. Appropriate attire is also required: no flip-flops or casual sandals, t-shirts, shorts, jeans with rips or holes, or anything too tight, short, revealing, or with profane language.
