The Kentucky Coal Academy (KCA) will host a job fair at Hazard Community and Technical
College s (HCTC) Technical Campus 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2, to help recruit displaced
miners for new jobs with Warrior Met Coal Company in Alabama.
Experienced miners, including certified electricians, equipment operators and supervisors
from Kentucky and surrounding areas are encouraged to attend the event, at 101 Vo-Tech
Drive, for the opportunity to have a same-day interview. Registration will occur in
the Devert Owens Building, Room 115C.
It s important we find any way possible to identify opportunities that will give displaced
miners a chance to get back to work, said KCA Executive Director Gary Whisman. We
strongly value the well-being of miners and their families, and are committed to continuing
to find ways to support them.
Staff will be on-hand at the job fair to answer questions and provide additional information
about KCA s programs and services, which teach transferable skills that can be used
in a variety of jobs. Attendees will also be able to learn more about other pathways
to higher education and careers available through programs at HCTC.
