Ingalls job fair turnout large

PASCAGOULA, Miss. - Hundreds of people attended an Ingalls Shipbuilding jobs fair Saturday. “We are hiring mostly in pipe, pipe welding and pipe fitting,” said Ingalls Vice President of Operations George Jones. “We are looking to hire over 500 positions from today to the end of the year.” When the company really ramps up on their new upcoming contracts in 2020, a lot more people will be hired, at least 2,000 over the next year. With the renovations and expansions of the shipyard, there will be more job fairs just like this one. Ingalls is going to need painters, electricians, and many other people with skills needed for shipbuilding to fill the need as they progress. (Source: WLOX, 09/07/19)
