AIKEN, S.C (WRDW/WAGT) - Although many government agencies have lost highly skilled employees to private corporations due to lucrative offers, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions is striving to fill recent losses and attract new employees to the Savannah River Site.

A job fair was recently held to recruit IT personnel, and it featured innovative on-the-spot offers.

Nearly 300 people attended the one-day event in North Augusta. Their resumes were quickly analyzed, and applicants whose skills matched job needs were encouraged to complete their applications using SRS laptop computers provided at the event.

As a result, 36 qualified candidates received contingent on-the-spot job offers.

“Time and again, we hear our IT employees say they greatly enjoy working at SRS,” said Len Bowers, manager of information technology for enterprise solutions. “We have a strategic plan in place, that we will continue to develop and expand, to meet our hiring objectives. Working with the U.S. Department of Energy, I’m confident we will reach those goals. The recent recruitment fair was a great start.”
