Employers, Job Seekers Find Matches at Free Job Fairs

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:

 

  • February 15, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., New Careers for Workers Over 40
  • March 29, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., Careers for Workers Re-Entering the Job Market
  • May 17, 3-6 p.m., Entry Level Job Opportunities
  • October 11, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., Careers for Workers with Disabilities

“The 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.”

Applications for employers who wish to participate are being accepted now for all the 2018 fairs. There is no cost to have a table, Wi-Fi and space to set up recruitment materials. All will be held at Job Link, 2227 Capricorn Way, Suite 100, Santa Rosa. Find the online application and submission deadlines for each fair at sonomawib.org/jobfairs. For more information, call the Job Link Business Services team at (707) 565-8079 or email joblinkbusinessgroup@schsd.org.

Job seekers can pre-register online to attend the fairs at sonomawib.org/jobfairs. Job seekers also have the opportunity to attend a workshop to help them prepare to connect with employers. Workshops are Tuesdays before each event.
