With layoffs imminent for workers at Georgia-Pacific’s paper mill in Camas, WorkSource Southwest Washington has plans to help them land on their feet.
More than a dozen companies will be present to meet with workers from the local chapter of the Association of Western Pulp and Paper Products as many look for new work after parts of the long-standing mill are decommissioned.
Nearly 300 employees will have been laid off starting May 1, according to Georgia-Pacific, an Atlanta-based subsidiary of Koch Industries.
Companies like Columbia Machine, Daimler Trucks North America, SEH America, WaferTech and Weyerhaeuser will be in attendance, offering jobs as process engineers, instrumentation technicians, training managers, pipefitters and more.
According to WorkSource, many of the jobs pay between $20 and $40 per hour.
The event is open to other job seekers, according to WorkSource. People should bring copies of their resume and be prepared to meet with hiring managers, the organization said.
Companies interested in reserving a table at the event should contact WorkSource representative Darcy Hoffman at 360-735-5038.
