Local Employers Sought For IE West End Job Fair
The Inland Empire West End Job Fair (“Local Jobs for Local Residents”) is a multi-city and county event that is scheduled to take place on Thursday, October 28, 2010 at the LA/Ontario International Airport.
Employers throughout the Inland Empire that may be seeking full- and/or part-time employees are encouraged to register early for this event to reserve their space. The Job Fair provides an exceptional opportunity for local companies to meet and discuss potential employment opportunities with high-quality, experienced candidates from the greater San Bernardino County area. There is no fee for participating employers.
Approximately 95 companies and more than 2,500 jobseekers took part in last year’s Inland Empire West End Job Fair and it is anticipated that this year’s event may be even larger.
The Inland Empire West End Job Fair came about as a result of the desire by local and regional officials to assist local residents with finding employment opportunities within the San Bernardino County area. With an average unemployment rate among participating West End communities at about 12% — which is close to both the County (14.8%) and State (12.8%) unemployment rates — the Job Fair is a welcome event.
Employers interested in participating in the 2010 Inland Empire West End Job Fair may register online at www.RCRDA.us/WEJF. Registration ends October 22nd or until all spaces are filled.
