Contractors Share Paducah Site Job Opportunities with Over 800 Students

PADUCAH, Ky.Contractors at EM’s Paducah Site recently teamed up to highlight career opportunities available at the site during the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce WKY (West Kentucky) Launch Experience.

The EM representatives gave hands-on presentations about jobs ranging from engineering and science to the production of documents to over 800 middle school students from across the region. “Events allowing us to showcase the career opportunities at the site casts an early recruiting net in a student’s academic career,” Portsmouth/Paducah Project Office (PPPO) Manager Joel Bradburne said. “PPPO and our contractors are committed to outreach efforts with local schools hoping to cultivate tomorrow’s talent.”

Paducah Site contractors Four Rivers Nuclear Partnership (FRNP), Swift & Staley Inc. and Mid-America Conversion Services, along with United Steel Workers Local 550, participated in the event. In this photo, FRNP Data Analyst Emily Coriell, right, demonstrates a pipe crawling robot at the event.
