Demand is high right now for diesel mechanics. Deb Christensen with the Nebraska Department of Labor says there are more openings than people to fill them. That is why they are holding a Diesel Technician – Mechanics Expo on Monday, October 29th.
Christensen says 30 companies will be represented and all are hiring. Some of the job positions include technicians and mechanics for busing, car and trucks, trains, agricultural equipment repair and power generation.
Experts in the field will give a presentation and an overview of what prospects can expect. There will also be several educational institutions represented to talk about programs they offer and financial aid.
The Diesel Technician – Mechanic Expo is Monday, October 29th at Metropolitan Community College, South Omaha Campus at 27th and Q Streets in Omaha. It starts at 6 pm.
