Veterans & Other Job Seekers Encouraged to Attend Job Fair at Military Business & Community Expo
Veterans who are currently looking for employment are encouraged to attend the job fair at the 5th Annual Military Business & Community Expo.
Many of Ventura County's best known employers including Navy Base Ventura County will be represented at the job fair.
Volt Workforce Solutions is an exhibitor at both the job fair and expo. "A large number of companies in Ventura County contract with the military," says Ellen Brown, Volt's Ventura County regional delivery manager "Vets bring the needed work ethic and 'hard' skills that translate well into military-related civilian jobs. Employers also have opportunities that are good matches for non-veteran workers. That's why the expo is open to all employers and job seekers."
"This is the third year we've hosted a job fair at the Military Business & Community Expo," says Bill Buratto, president and CEO of VCEDA. "Participation grows every year. Our county is fortunate that it has well-educated, trained and trainable workers. Not every region has such a skilled and flexible workforce."
Job fair hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Those who participate can attend a free seminar, "How to Get A Job On Base." The fair will include an area for job seekers to gain resume and interview tips from job placement professionals.
The cost for an employer display table is $300. For more information or to reserve a table, contact, Renee Smith at 805-969-5244 firstname.lastname@example.org or go to http://www.MilitaryBizExpo.com.
