A Link to Local Talent
Debi Balog
Director, Workforce Development
Are you looking to hire highly skilled, professional employees? Then look no further than your "own back yard."

Three talented people were permanently displaced from a local manufacturing company in March of 2019. These individuals are available and willing to put their experience, skills, and education to work for you. 

They possess portable skill sets that will enable them to transition into a variety of different industries. All three individuals have backgrounds as production supervisors with experience in quality assurance, electronic and mechanical assembling and documentation.

To connect to these dedicated, hardworking individuals, contact Debi Balog at (814) 262-8366 or via e-mail at DBalog@JARI.com .
