Duke Energy has scheduled job fairs to recruit entry-level workers for existing and expected open positions in its Indiana service area. The positions include distribution line workers, transmission line workers, transmission relay workers, and generation station workers.

“Many of our Indiana employees plan to retire in 2014 and 2015, which creates open positons that we need to fill,” said Melody Birmingham-Byrd, Duke Energy senior vice president for Midwest delivery operations. “These are lucrative employment opportunities that can lead to long-term careers. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion helps us attract and retain the talented employees we need to thrive as a company.”

The job fairs will be held in:

  • Columbus – Thursday, July 24 at the Ivy Tech Community College, 4475 Central Avenue, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sellersburg – Tuesday, July 22 at the Ivy Tech Community College, 8204 Highway 311, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Bloomington – Wednesday, July 23 at the Bloomington-Monroe County Convention Center, 302 South College Avenue, 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

  • Kokomo – Tuesday, July 22 at the Ivy Tech Community College, 1500 North Reed Road, 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Vincennes – Tuesday, July 22 at the Vincennes University student union building, 1101 North Second St., 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
