CAT to share job info at upcoming sessions on ATC campus
Caterpillar’s recent Bridging the Gap to Industry Information sessions held on the Athens Technical College Athens Campus were so popular that the company has planned additional events.
Athens Technical College is hosting two more of Caterpillar’s Bridging the Gap to Industry Information Sessions on upcoming Fridays — November 1 and November 8 — though registration for the November 1 session has reached capacity and is now closed.
The information sessions are targeted to people who are interested in a career in the manufacturing industry, and the information will cover the fabrication and assembly positions at the new Caterpillar plant in Athens. The sessions will take place in the auditorium of the Easom Building on the Athens Campus, 800 U.S. Highway 29 North.
Caterpillar representatives who will give the November 8 presentation will focus on fabrication.. The fabrication process will require a variety of jobs including welders, machinists, team leaders, section managers, and manufacturing engineers,
The November 8 Bridging the Gap Information Session will feature a morning and an afternoon program from which those registering can choose. The morning program will begin at 10 a.m., and the afternoon program will begin at 2 p.m.
In addition to discussing opportunities at Caterpillar's Athens plant, representatives will suggest courses at Athens Technical College that could help prepare individuals for future openings at Caterpillar and other local manufacturing businesses.
Anyone interested in a manufacturing career and finding out about job possibilities at Caterpillar, must register online to attend the Bridging the Gap to Industry Information Session. Space will be limited.
