TORRANCE, CA and WHITE PLAINS, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - Verengo Inc. is the nation's leading residential solar specialist, who last month announced it was expanding into New York State. The company will be interviewing candidates for many new positions this Saturday, April 20th from 10am - 1pm at 329 Route 303 in Orangeburg, NY. These positions will include electricians, sales consultants, field market supervisors, canvassers, and solar installers.
"Verengo is seeking bright, energetic applicants with positive, can-do attitudes who are looking for a professional career in the booming clean energy business. We offer extensive training, highly competitive compensation and an opportunity for advancement," said Co-Founder and President Ken Button.
"We are definitely in an expansion mode," said Co-Founder and CEO Randy Bishop. "We hired over 700 new employees last year, and we plan to hire at least that many this year. We have a values-driven, customer-centric corporate culture with programs that make for happy, loyal customers and employees. We prefer to promote from within, making this a great ground floor opportunity for go-getters who are passionate about the green energy field and want to work for a leader in residential solar."
The Job Fair is free and open to candidates of all ages, experience levels, and industries. Both full-time and part-time positions are available. Candidates are advised to dress professionally and come prepared with resumes.
"With the NY-Sun Initiative, now is a great time for New Yorkers to go solar and save money," said Peter Olmstead of citizen's advocacy group Vote Solar. "As a nationally recognized solar leader, already serving thousands of customers and supporting hundreds of jobs elsewhere in the country, Verengo's entry to the Empire State is a clear signal that New York is on its way to becoming a solar powerhouse."
Last January in his State of the State address, Governor Cuomo solidified New York's commitment to NY-Sun, which aims to quadruple the state's customer-sited solar in 2013, offering up to $5,000 in individual tax credits. Cuomo recently welcomed Verengo's presence in New York on twitter: NY-Sun attracting #solar biz to the Empire State - thx @NYGovCuomo http://finance.yahoo.com/news/verengo-solar-launches-zero-down-070000851.html ... via @verengosolar
