The call to build manufacturing careers in Clarke County is continually increasing. Local employers such as Altec, Iowa Steel/Countryside Tank and SIMCO are all looking for career employees who fit their needs. These openings can be found on their own websites as well as other job search outlets.
A widespread misconception is that you must have experience in manufacturing to be considered for any of the open positions, but that is not true. In this era of high turnover, most employers are willing to train the right candidate. There is so much more behind a successful career than knowing the job. Employers are looking for responsible people who are willing and able to learn and aren’t afraid to work. The rest can be taught.
“I’ve spoken with many businesses throughout the area and their main focus is finding the right person for the right position. It’s no longer a matter of degree versus qualifications. Many employers are looking for that responsible person they can train to fit into a long-term career,” says Bill Trickey, of Clark County Development Corporation.
Another great employer in Osceola, Lakeside Hotel and Casino, currently has openings, too. Whether ground floor beginnings or managerial careers, there are a lot of options for anyone who wants to work. It all starts with you taking that first step.
