Department of Corrections Hosts Job Fairs

The Department of Corrections is hosting job fairs within its prisons for the first time ever – seeking corrections workers in a competitive job market. Statewide, the DOC says there is a 14-percent vacancy rate for corrections officers and sergeants at adult prisons. Green Bay Correctional has 15-percent of those spots open, while Oshkosh has 21-percent of those positions available. A job fair was held in Green Bay on Wednesday – but another is being held at Oshkosh Correctional from 1:00pm-8:00pm tonight. If you can’t make that fair, there are more job fairs at facilities around the state this month.
