Monday May 20, 2013

Despite a strong response from job-seekers, more than 200 warehouse jobs are still available in the Louisville area and a new registration opportunity is available.

Registration for eligible young adults, ages 18-21 will be Wednesday, May 22, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Centennial Room of the main branch of the Louisville Free Public Library, 301 York St.

Staff with the KentuckianaWorks Youth Career Center will register the young adults in the Mayor’s SummerWorks Program and then help them apply online for the available positions.

No appointment is necessary to attend this Mayor’s SummerWorks registration event. Those who register must bring two forms of identification (driver’s license and Social Security card) and copies of their resumes. They also should dress professionally for an interview.

Available summer warehouse jobs include pickers and packers, press operators, forklift operators, distribution associates, and loading and unloading trucks. Eight employers in Jefferson and Bullitt counties have more than 200 open positions, and many of them start immediately.

These jobs are open to young adults who:

  • Are between the ages of 18-21;
  • Have a GED or high school diploma;
  • Are able to walk and stand for prolonged periods of time;
  • Can lift at least 30-50 pounds for prolonged periods of time.

Interested individuals may call 502-574-4727 if they have questions prior to the registration event.

The Mayor’s SummerWorks Program is led by KentuckianaWorks, Greater Louisville’s

Workforce Investment Board and an agency of Louisville Metro Government, in partnership with Jefferson County Public Schools Adult and Continuing Education through the KentuckianaWorks Youth Career Center.
