Career Fair Riviera, Texas update

Working at the early college job and career fair for STL USA’s WindStart program in Riviera, Texas, alongside Ventos Power Plus was an exhilarating experience. As representatives of a pioneering initiative aimed at fostering talent in renewable energy, our booth stood out among the 30 others, drawing the attention of around 300 eager early college candidates.

Our role at the fair was multifaceted. We were not only ambassadors of the WindStart Get into Wind program but also advocates for the renewable energy industry as a whole. Engaging with prospective candidates, we showcased the myriad opportunities available in the field. Through interactive demonstrations and informative presentations, we aimed to ignite passion for a future career as a wind turbine technician. As candidates explored our booth, we shared insights into the dynamic world of wind energy, highlighting its crucial role technicians play in the industry. 

Our next Texas fair is in Amarillo, details below, come and say hi!!
