To help recruit drivers, service technicians and customer service representatives for the propane industry, the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is promoting its workforce recruitment resources on the Mike Rowe podcast, The Way I Heard It, on March 3, 10, 17, and 24.
A popular TV host, writer, narrator, producer, actor and product spokesman, Rowe is best known for his role on the long-running show “Dirty Jobs.” Recognized by Forbes as one of the country’s 10 Most Trustworthy Celebrities in 2010, 2011 and 2012, Rowe runs the Mike Rowe Works Foundation, which awards scholarships to students pursuing a career in the skilled trades.
His website addresses issues related to the widening skills gap, aging workforce, high unemployment and millions of unfilled jobs and provides comprehensive resources for anyone looking to explore those vocations.
During his podcasts, Rowe will read a 60-second message promoting the propane industry as offering fulfilling work in the clean energy economy, noting that odds are good that there are propane companies in all towns looking to fill openings. He will then direct listeners to the workforce development resources on propane.com.
