Job fair will serve employers and job seekers
The San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board will host the High Desert Regional Job Fair on Aug. 20 at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in Victorville. This event will offer businesses the chance to meet, interview and hire highly qualified and experienced staff to fill full and part-time positions.
Job seekers are encouraged to attend armed with resumes and ready to meet prospective employers. There is still time for employers to register to participate.
“It is our priority to connect employers and job seekers in San Bernardino County to create more opportunity for our residents and businesses to thrive,” said San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Chairman James Ramos. “Our vision for this county includes facilitating access to prosperity for all who choose to reside here and enjoy the county’s unique advantages.”
Last year’s job fair attracted 1,325 job seekers, ages 18 to over 65. More than 700 job openings were offered by companies specializing in a range of industries including warehousing, manufacturing, technology, healthcare, education, construction and hospitality.
“Our job fairs are effective in helping local business find great local candidates,” said Sandy Harmsen, Executive Director of the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board. “It is a great opportunity for employers to enjoy a one-stop shop for their recruitment needs.”
The job fair, “Local Jobs for Local Residents,” will run from 9 a.m. to noon on Aug. 20 at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds at 14800 7th Street, Victorville.
