Bucks Holding Informational Session for Workers Interested in Arena Jobs

In December, the Bucks launched a partnership with SkillSmart to create a workforce development platform for family-supporting careers in the new arena district – both during the construction process and for end-use positions in the arena and surrounding development. The platform can be accessed at www.bucksarenajobs.com and will serve as a valuable resource for both job seekers and employers.

To help introduce prospective jobseekers to the platform, the Bucks are hosting a series of informational sessions throughout the city. This Thursday, April 13, the Bucks will be partnering with Mortenson Construction and Alderman Russell W. Stamper II to host the fourth in this series of informational sessions at the St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care on Milwaukee’s north side.

The event will start at 5:30 PM at St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care located at 2450 W. North Ave.

Jobseekers interested in attending Thursday’s town hall are encouraged to RSVP at www.wisconsinesc.com/careers.

Construction of the new arena is expected to generate over 3,000 jobs, while an additional $230 million in economic development is already pledged or under construction in the surrounding area that will produce thousands more family-supporting careers in the coming years. The new platform powered by SkillSmart will build a pipeline of qualified applicants for construction and end-use positions throughout the district. The site breaks down available positions in terms of necessary skills and prerequisites, while inviting jobseekers to build a personal profile based around their work experience, training and qualifications. The tool will then provide jobseekers with scores for each available position based upon how well their skillset and qualifications align with the job, while also providing resources to potential employees on additional training available for them to become stronger candidates for available positions.
