While focused on presenting these career options to female-identified job seekers, Oregon Tradeswomen’s Career Fair is open to everyone! Most workshops are managed by tradeswomen, demonstrating the power and potential of a truly diverse workforce.

Oregon Tradeswomen’s goal is to offer middle and high school students a unique educational opportunity, and introduce the many career options available in the trades where they can earn while they learn and access debt-free career education!

School Day at Oregon Tradeswomen’s annual Career Fair offers a unique, hands-on opportunity for students to learn about apprenticeship and career training opportunities after high school without the burden of college debt. The interactive, hands-on learning opportunities allow students to use the tools of the trades, talk directly with tradeswomen about the work they do, and gain knowledge about satisfying, high-paying careers in the construction trades. All students are welcome to attend.
