Job Fair Set for SAGE Center on March 4


The second annual SAGE Center Agriculture and Energy Job Fair is set for March 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the SAGE Center.

The event is open to the public giving attendees a chance to visit with area food processors, utilities, farms, local government agencies, data centers and educational institutions about careers, education and job-seeking help.

Job fair participants can also learn more about the Boardman Community Development Association’s Home Buying Incentive Program. The incentive is $5,000 toward the purchase of a primary residence in the 97818 zip code.

“This event gives people the opportunity to connect with the region’s leading agriculture and energy industries to discover rewarding careers,” said Kalie Davis, SAGE Center manager.

Local high school students and college students have also been invited to the fair to see careers available in their communities and learn what kind of education they need to work in local industries.

Blue Mountain Community College, Walla Walla Community College, Perry Technical Institute, Oregon State University and Eastern Oregon University are also attending to provide information about educational opportunities.
