The CTA and Walsh-Fluor Design-Build Team announced an innovative new series of Red and Purple Modernization (RPM) Construction Careers Networking Fairs to diversify the project workforce and reach disadvantaged workers and communities throughout Chicago with information about training and career opportunities that can lead to work on RPM, other CTA projects and other Chicago construction projects. RTA and Walsh-Fluor will host the first event on Wednesday, Aug. 28, at JLM Center, 2622 W. Jackson Blvd., from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Pre-registration is recommended because space is limited at https://rpmcareernetworking.eventbrite.com. The Red Purple Modernization (RPM) Phase One project is the CTA’s largest-ever capital improvement project. Participants at the RPM Construction Careers Networking Fair will be able to:

• Learn more about what kind of jobs will be available on the project,

• How to qualify and apply for jobs that will be created

• Network with union representatives and job assistance agencies to learn how to become eligible and ready to work on construction jobs throughout Chicago, including apprenticeship opportunities.
