Staffing agency seeking to fill 900 Central-Pennsylvania job openings

  • 0

One Hanover, Maryland-based staffing agency is looking to fill more than 900 job openings in fields such as logistics, health care, manufacturing, warehousing and call-centers throughout Carlisle, Harrisburg, Lewisberry and Shippensburg.

Aerotek is looking for candidates with a high school diploma or GED, with many positions offering hands-on and verbal training, the company said. Some positions offer an approximately 90-day contract-to-hire transition, with the opportunity to move up within the company.

“Central Pennsylvania’s job market is beginning to flourish as more companies turn to this area to handle their unprecedented growth and customer demand,” said Greg Long, director of operations at Aerotek’s Harrisburg base. “Companies are becoming more dynamic with how they adhere to their customer’s needs, and one of those major indicators is how quickly they are able to get their product to the customer.

“Here in Central PA the distribution, warehouse and overall logistics industry plays a major role in the economy because we are in close proximity to major markets like Philly, NYC, Baltimore and DC.”

According to Long, local labor economists are optimistic that the state is showing long-term trends in healthy job growth this year, an evaluation supported by Aerotek’s current number of openings in the area.

“It is normal for the job market to pick up in the fourth quarter since the economy typically picks up for the holidays, but we have never in the past 10 plus years seen it at this level,” he said.

Candidates interested in learning more and applying can visit Aerotek.com or call Aerotek’s Central Pennsylvania office at 717-395-9990 or 717-267-0087.
