1508_GoodwillJobFair1For the past few years PTAA and Goodwill of NWNC have been partnering to make NAA’s CAMT designation a central part of the maintenance program that Goodwill and Forsyth Technical Community College developed as one of their job training programs. A couple of times a year PTAA and Goodwill team up to host a job fair so that PTAA members can meet graduates of the program as well as other qualified candidates identified by Goodwill.
On the morning of August 19, 2015 one such job fair was held at Goodwill and so far the results have been impressive: five maintenance technicians and one maintenance supervisor were hired by participating PTAA members. Considering that these job fairs are fairly small this kind of result is very impressive and highlights the value of having a highly targeted event that focuses on quality versus quantity.

1508_GoodwillJobFair2As most people in the local apartment industry are aware, the maintenance tech position is one of the hardest to staff given that there’s often a great deal of turnover and the candidate pool is very limited. PTAA’s partnership with Goodwill of NWNC is a critical component of our efforts to help address this issue for our members. If you would like more information, and in particular if you would like to be notified directly the next time we schedule a job fair, please contact Carrie Langley at 336-294-4428.
