Newport News To Host Shipbuilders’ Day Job Fair

NEWPORT NEWS—In 2019, the Virginia General Assembly designated August 13 as Shipbuilders’ Day in celebration of the commonwealth’s maritime heritage and history as a national leader in the shipbuilding industry.

To honor the contributions of maritime employees and support their workforce development needs, Newport News is partnering with local businesses and agencies to host a Shipbuilders’ Day Job Fair on August 13 from noon to 2pm at the Brooks Crossing Innovation and Opportunity Center, located at 550 30th Street, Suite 102.

During the event, employers from the maritime, shipbuilding, and ship repair industries will be on-site, highlighting their open positions. Partners include Newport News Shipbuilding, Virginia Career Works—Hampton Roads, Four Oaks Day Services and Training Center, Volunteers of America—Chesapeake and Carolinas, Hampton Roads Community Action Program, Veterans Services, and more.

The event is free and open to the public. Businesses interested in participating should contact Lisa Wornom-Zahralddin at Wornom-Zahralddin@nnva.gov.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
