Oceanside CA— Looking for a job? Classic Mitsubishi, the YMCA, Pick Up Stix and the California Conservation Corps will be among the dozen companies and organizations on hand for a MiraCosta College Job Fair set for Sept. 28 at the Community Learning Center at 1831 Mission Avenue in Oceanside.
Job seekers will have the opportunity to meet employers during the course of the day and discuss with them what type of employees they are looking for, why a career with their organization is better than others, and more.
Those attending the event should dress their best and bring updated resumes.
“We are excited to create opportunities for continuing education students while promoting economic and community development through strategic partnerships,” said Dr. Nikki Schaper, dean of behavioral sciences, history and adult education, who noted that the MiraCosta College Job Fair sponsored by the Continuing Education Program is part of a larger strategy to address the workforce development needs of the community.
The job fair will run 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on September 28.
On October 8, noon-4 p.m., the Community Learning Center will hold an open house with free food, music, kids’ activities and a wealth of resources. Among the community organizations on hand will be Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County, the Job Corps, North County Health Services, Vista Community Clinic, the Arc of San Diego and more.
“Through these events we hope to create an awareness within the community of the free classes and support services that connect continuing education students to the job market,” said Schaper.
