With area automotive companies and other businesses planning to bring hundreds of new jobs to the Toledo area, the time is golden for Toledo Public Schools students and others who want a manufacturing job.

To make it easier for interested people to get information, TPS and several organizations have planned two community meetings at which interested students and others can hear directly from employers on what they can expect, what skills are needed and how motivated workers can qualify for these good-paying manufacturing jobs.

The details on the two meetings are:

  • Wednesday, January 18, 6-7 p.m., in the auditorium at Woodward High School, 701 E. Central Ave.
  • Wednesday, January 25, 6-7 p.m., in the auditorium at Scott High School, 2400 Collingwood Blvd.

Organizers of the meeting say Dana Corp., Detroit Manufacturing and MOBIS all will be hiring and they are looking at residents specifically from the Woodward and Scott communities.

Following each meeting, a brief workshop providing additional details about preparing for these coming jobs will take place at 7 p.m.

Light refreshments will be available following the main meeting. Advance registration is recommended but not required. Register online at http://workreadymanufacturing.setmore.com or call OhioMeans Jobs Lucas County at 419-213-5627.

If you can't make either of these events, additional community sessions and workshops can be found online at www.workreadylucascounty.com

These community meetings are being presented through the cooperative support of TPS, the Lucas County Department of Planning & Development, Ohio Means Jobs and Lucas County.
