BrandGOV's Empower Solano Hiring Fair is Set for May 17
"We want anyone who walks through the doors at the fair to know that there's a job opportunity there for them," says K. Patrice Williams, BrandGOV's CEO and executive director for Empower Solano. "We are placing special emphasis on applicants who may not have worked for a while or who have had some involvement with the justice system."
The event will take place on Wednesday, May 17, from 3pm to 6pm at the Workforce Development Board of Solano County office, at 500 Chadbourne Road, Fairfield. Admission is free. To register, visit www.empowersolano.org/
Major employers are expected to participate, including Home Depot, Xfinity, Ole Health, Star Staffing and Goodwill Industries. Companies will conduct interviews with applicants at the event and lunch will be provided. Organizers are also working with residents of transient housing and shelters to provide transportation to and from the fair.
An online seminar titled "Ready Set job! Solano County's Ultimate Job Readiness Workshop" will be offered before the fair for anyone wanting to brush up on their job-hunting skills. Participants will be able to speak live via zoom with experts on such topics as how to do your best during an interview; how to research companies; questions to ask potential employers; and how to stand-out as a job applicant. The workshop will be held Wednesday, May 10, from 11am to 1pm. Pre-registration is required. Sign-up at www.empowersolano.org/
The fair and workshop are being planned by BrandGOV's Empower Solano personnel and funded by the Solano County Public Health Department. For more information, please visit www.empowersolano.org/
