Santa Rosa, CA – January 8, 2018 – Sonoma County employers from
all industries can meet qualified job seekers at four free job fairs hosted by
Sonoma County Job Link and the Workforce Investment Board (WIB).
All job seekers and
employers are welcome to attend any or all of the fairs, though each event has a theme:
15, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., New Careers for Workers Over 40

17, 3-6 p.m., Entry Level Job Opportunities
11, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., Careers for Workers with Disabilities
themes bring attention to quality workers who are often overlooked in a
competitive marketplace,” says Job Link Program Development Manager Jessica
Taylor. “These workers bring excellent skills, but don't always get the
attention they deserve.”

all the 2018 fairs. There is no cost to have a table, Wi-Fi and space to set up
