Job candidates looking to be employed by one of the United States’ largest shipbuilders will be able to interview for a job without having to leave their cars.
America’s largest military shipbuilding company Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) announced Wednesday that its Ingalls Shipbuilding division in Pascagoula, Miss. will host a “drive-in hiring event” due to coronavirus restrictions.
On Friday, May 22, from 9 a.m. until noon, potential hirees will have the opportunity to apply for open positions and speak to Ingalls recruiters and shipbuilders in person without having to exit their vehicles.
“We are exploring innovative hiring techniques that provide greater accessibility to the many employment opportunities we have to offer,” said Edmond Hughes, vice president of human resources and administration at Ingalls. “This event allows us to efficiently interface with interested applicants while practicing safe social distancing.”
Ingalls, which says it is looking to add workers in a number of open shipbuilding positions this year, held a one-day online hiring event earlier this month. According to HII’s website, minimum pay for open positions at Ingalls starts at $34,000 per year.
Pre-registration for the drive-in hiring event is available online here.
