I work as a Career Counselor at the Missouri Career Center in Columbia at 1500 Vandiver Drive, Suite 115. Generally speaking, it is, indeed, a tough time to be looking for work in Mid-Missouri. Have you registered with Diversified Staffing on Main street downtown. I'm not sure who they represent, but I'd certainly get registered there. Caterpillar uses Volt Staffing and they have a Volt staff person at their work site. They also give a test for new applicants that requires 9th grade math level expertise in addition to general mechanical aptitude. Nordyne, I believe, has been calling back the people they laid off before Christmas, so that would be another place to look. Glen Martin Engineering is usually looking for 2 or 3 positions - not sure what they have right now, but it wouldn't hurt to put in application there.

If you're willing to come to Columbia to work, Square D is hiring for 2nd shift. Quaker Oats has an on-line ap at www.fritolayemployment.com you can check there to see if they are currently hiring. Also, Dana Corp has an on-line app at www.dana.com Tyson over at Marshall is often hiring. There's always the boat. American Air Filter is another possibility. I'm assuming you have a HS diploma or GED, dependable transportation and don't have a felony record. If you have any of those barriers to employment, it will be a little harder to find work, but in my experience, those who persevere eventually obtain employment.

Feel free to come to the Missouri Career Center for further assistance. All of our employment services are free.
Thank you for all the helpful information!! No, my husband does not have a diploma or GED. He doesn't have a felony record. I think it would most likely take my husband quite alot of learning inorder to obtain a GED. We will check all these places out. Thanks again!!!
