Ingalls Shipbuilding held a drive thru hiring event at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Convention Center.
Ingalls encouraged anyone interested in a career with the company to come through the event.
Once at the convention center, drivers were instructed to follow the signs to registration. They were then directed to one of the crafts available based on their experience.
Talent Manager Director Sandia Christian describes the kind of workers Ingalls is looking for. “What we’re looking for is craft individuals who want a career. We’re looking for ship fitters, structural welders, looking for electrical which electrical is a new thing. In a lot of cases we’re not looking for electrical people, but today we’ve gotten several individuals with electrical experience which has been a great opportunity for us as well as them.”
Anyone who missed the event can attend another one in George County on Saturday.
