Atascadero holding job fair on Wednesday
Event will be free
–A citywide job fair is planned for Wednesday, Sept. 29 from 3-6 p.m. at Sunken Gardens in front of Atascadero City Hall.
This job fair is a joint effort by the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce and Eckerd Connects and is sponsored by the Department of State Hospitals – Atascadero. The event provides a platform for businesses that are hiring to meet potential employees and for job seekers to discover employment opportunities. All businesses in the Atascadero area are eligible to participate and invited to visit atascaderochamber.org to register. Participation is free.
Atascadero Chamber of Commerce CEO, Josh Cross states “The chamber is always looking for ways to support the business community, and right now we know that our members have an immediate need for additional employees so that they can maintain operating hours or grow their business. The job fair is a win-win for businesses and for folks looking for employment.”
People attending this free event will have the opportunity to speak to business representatives about job openings and skills required to secure a position. Job seekers can view the list of participating organizations at atascaderochamber.org.
Allison Schiavo of Eckerd Connects and Area Manager for America’s Job Center of California, San Luis Obispo County, shared, “There are great local employment opportunities right now and we have a vast database of job seekers whose unemployment benefits will soon expire, so this is the right time to partner with the chamber to bring people together. Lack of talent is a huge issue locally and a contributing factor preventing businesses from fully reopening.”
Staff at America’s Job Center are available Monday through Friday, virtually and in person, to help people prepare to put their best foot forward to employers at this event. For more information visit www.eckerdconnects.org/slo or call 805.286.8530.
Job seekers can stop by anytime between 3 P.M. and 6 P.M. at Sunken Gardens located on 6505 El Camino Real in front of Historic Atascadero City Hall. This event coincides with the Atascadero Farmer’s Market.
