Employers sought for renewable energy job fair

Columbia Gorge Community College is hosting an annual Renewable Energy Technology (RET) Career Fair for enrolled students on April 4 from 10 a.m. to noon at The Dalles campus.

This career fair attracts highly-skilled RET students with experience in electrical systems, mechanical systems, and electronics with a focus on the renewable-energy industry. Many RET students have previous degrees or extensive life experience.

Employers from any realm of the renewable energy technology sector — wind, solar, hydro, and electronics and advanced manufacturing — are invited to attend to share information about their company and/or jobs in the sector.

Employers are encouraged to register soon to secure booth space for the fair. Employers may register to have a booth at the event by visiting the RET website at

Electricity and wireless internet are available on an as-needed basis.

Students in the Renewable Energy Technology program may receive a 9-month certificate or a 2-year associate of applied science degree. Both programs have coursework in electrical engineering, mechanics, and electronics.

The 9-month certificate program prepares students for employment in renewable energy with a focus on the wind industry. The 2-year degree program prepares students for employment in a broad range of industries including wind-generation, hydro-generation, solar-generation, automated manufacturing and engineering.
