Masco Employment Workshop

The Masco employment workshop consists of a classroom session beginning an hour and a half prior to the hiring fair.  This is a unique workshop being trained by local Masco HR professionals. This will be followed one-on-one mentoring sessions by Masco representatives with all pre-registered and walk-in participants to be conducted throughout the day.  Mentoring sessions focus on resume building, resume writing, and interviewing techniques for all job-seeking veterans and service member participants.

Interested candidates must complete the FREE electronic pre-registration in order to participate.  A maximum of 50 participants will be accepted for the full workshop.  Once the pre-registered candidates have their coaching sessions, the opportunity may be available for “walk ins” to have a coaching session through the end of the Fair (depending on availability).
