Garamendi to urge employers to hire vets at Dec. 6 job fair

By
From page A5 | December 05, 2013 |

More than 40 employers are set to take part in a job fair hosted by Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, on Friday, Dec. 6, in Fairfield.

The event, to be held in the Solano County Events Center at 601 Texas St., will include a special emphasis on finding work for veterans and a jobs “boot camp” aimed at helping applicants improving their chances of being hired.

The workshop will run from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. The job fair is set for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The boot camp will feature professional development speakers, job placement coaches and professional employment counselors. Topics will include improving résumés, cover letters and portfolios, as well as learning how to give a personal “elevator pitch.”

Space in the workshop will be limited. To take part, RSVP at http://bit.ly/jobsbootcamp.

Job seekers are encouraged to bring their résumé and dress appropriately for interviews.

During the event, Garamendi plans to hold a news conference alongside members of a jobs task force he has assembled. They will tout a new veterans hiring initiative dubbed “Just Hire One,” which encourages regional employers to pledge to hire at least one veteran.

Others set to take part in the job fair will include representatives from the military, unemployment office, Chambers of Commerce, labor unions, community colleges and development agencies.

Representatives from Covered California, the state’s new health insurance exchange, also will be available to help uninsured families find insurance.
