County of Santa Clara to Sponsor Employment Connection Job Fair to Assist CalWORKs Clients

WHAT:
Santa Clara County Social Services Agency’s 2013 Employment Connection Job Fair will connect over a thousand participants to local employers. Coordinators are focusing on serving CalWORKs clients, including those who have recently timed out because of existing State regulations.  Forty employers with various jobs are expected to participate. No registration is required.
 
Children are not allowed at the job fair.  As parking is limited, public transportation is recommended.  Job seekers are encouraged to arrive early.

WHO:
Santa Clara County Social Services Agency, Department of Employment and Benefit Services
Local employers
Job seekers (General public and Santa Clara County’s current and former CalWORKs clients)

WHEN:
Thursday, July 25, 2013, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

WHERE:
1879 Senter Road, Door #11, San Jose, CA 95112

WHY:
There are slightly more than 14,000 low income families who rely on the Santa Clara County Social Services Agency for assistance. The majority are striving to become self-sufficient through training and employment. Employer partners continue to collaborate to respond to the needs of the community and make opportunities available to prospective employees.
 
Job fair opportunities continue to be important while the rate of unemployment in Santa Clara County improves: 6.3 percent in May 2013, up from a revised 6.6 percent in April 2013. The unemployment rate for California was 8.1 percent and 7.3 percent for the nation during the same period.  About 1,200 job seekers attended last year's Employee Connection Job Fair.
