In support of Mayor Bowser‘s Second Chance program, the DC Department of Public Works (DPW) will host a community job fair Wednesday, June 8, from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the North Michigan Park Recreation Center located at 1333 Emerson Street, NE, Washington, DC 20017.
“As a second chance employer we want to provide an opportunity for the community, including our returning citizens, to get to know DPW and learn about our vacant positions,” said DPW Interim Director Mike Carter. “DC is a great place to live and District Government agencies like DPW are a great place to work.“
DPW has positions available across the agency with several positions available for tow truck operators. During the job fair, job seekers can talk to DPW human resource representatives, and apply for vacant tow truck positions. Qualified applicants may be invited for an interview, additional screening, or testing on June 9.
