Vidak Seeks Employers with Jobs to Fill for January 27 Career Expo

Monday, January 11, 2016

Sacramento – Senator Andy Vidak (R-Hanford) has teamed up with U.S. Congressman David G. Valadao, The Wonderful Company and Tachi Palace for the Central Valley Career and Resource Expo on January 27 in Lemoore.

“With high unemployment in the Valley, connecting people looking for a job with people who have jobs is a top priority,” said Vidak.  “If you are an employer with jobs to fill, you are invited to participate in the Expo.”

What makes this Expo different is that all booth participants have current job openings. Serious job applicants come to the Expo because they know their chances of landing a job at this event is much higher than many job fairs. Last year’s Expo featured over 80 employers, and over 300 job applicants attended.

The comprehensive series of live workshops to help job-seekers develop a successful job-search strategy and get tools to land a job include:

  • Job interviewing/role playing
  • Resume Review/writing it, posting it and employers perspective
  • Social networking/job search strategy
  • Dress for Success
