The Vermont Department of Labor has teamed up with GlobalFoundries in an effort to help fill the company’s more than 50 available positions by hosting “Foundry Fridays” this Friday and Aug. 25 at each of its 12 Career Resource Centers.
Anyone interested in applying for a job at GlobalFoundries in Essex Junction can learn about openings and receive assistance filling out an application.
Then Aug. 30, the department and GlobalFoundries also will host a job fair at the DoubleTree on Williston Road in South Burlington from 3 to 6 p.m.
Applications will be reviewed by GlobalFoundries human resources staff and qualified applicants will be given an opportunity to participate in an on-site interview at GlobalFoundries.
“We’re excited to be coordinating with GlobalFoundries on creative ways the Department can assist companies with attracting the talent they need to be successful in Vermont,” said Michael Harrington, deputy commissioner for the Vermont Department of Labor.
GlobalFoundries recently announced an increase in the starting wage for entry-level positions. New employees will start at the Advanced Manufacturing Technician–Temporary level earning $14.50 per hour with health benefits and a retirement plan. After three years, new hires become permanent employees and earn $15 per hour.
