Are you looking for a job? You may be in luck if you’re in maintenance.

The US Postal Service will hire about 70 skilled maintenance workers in Memphis and Nashville according to a Commercial Appeal report. The pay scales range from $18.94 to $25.01 an hour.

The USPS Memphis job fair will take place at the Central Station boardroom at 545 S. Main, Suite 109 from 11am-3pm.

Human resource specialists will be available to speak about the job requirements. However, if you’re unable to attend the job fair, you can apply online at beginning the day after on Friday.

Applicants must pass a written exam, a pre-employment drug screening and must also be a US citizen, lawful permanent resident alien or citizen of territories owing allegiance to the US. Some positions require applicants to hold valid state driver’s licenses and demonstrate safe driving records.

If you’ve been out of a job recently and have the necessary skills for a job like this, here’s your opportunity to get back in the workforce.

Though national unemployment rates have been down, Memphis tends to remain behind the curve. Practicing bankruptcy law in Memphis for decades, I know the effect unemployment can have on a person’s finances and life.

If you’ve been unemployed and are now in deep debt because of it, going to this job fair could be a great first step at getting yourself out of the hole. At the same time, I would recommend that you consider filing for a bankruptcy to clear yourself of the debts you currently have.

By filing for bankruptcy, your debt can either be discharged through a Chapter 7 or lumped into an affordable 3-5 year repayment plan through a Chapter 13. After you’ve completed the bankruptcy, you have a fresh financial slate to begin rebuilding your credit the right way.

At Darrell Castle & Associates, we have a great program to help you with this called “7 Steps to a 720” that will help you re-establish and rebuild your credit the right way by teaching you things the credit card companies don’t want you to know.

A new job and a fresh financial start – it’s worth a shot. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, or would like to explore other options around resolving your debt, please call a leading bankruptcy law firm Memphis, TN residents have been relying on for over a decade.
