Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Hosting Job Fair
The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is hosting a job fair next week.
The shipyard is hoping the fair will help them fill about 160 open positions.
The positions range from chemists and electricians to painters and pipefitters.
In a statement, shipyard commander Captain Dave Hunt says their workload is increasing and they need the extra help to keep up.
The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard repairs and refits nuclear-powered submarines.
The facility already employs more than 5,500 civilian employees. The fair will run Nov. 14 from noon to 8 p.m. in Eliot, Maine.
