Career and Community Resource Fair

Submitted By Nina Moore

The Fremont Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present its third annual Career and Community Resource Fair on Friday, February 1st at the Fremont Adult School. This event is a job fair and community resource fair rolled into one, aimed at helping individuals who are job-hunting, interested in starting their own business, seeking to update or expand their skills, or interested in local resources that can help those in transition. Additionally, this year the fair will provide information to local businesses interested in opportunities available through the BART extension to San Jose project.

Local employers who are hiring will be on site to explain their job opportunities and accept resumes. Educational institutions that provide training programs for those seeking to develop new technical skills or transition careers will be on hand to provide information about their programs, along with local service providers who provide health care, housing referrals and other support services to individuals and families in need. Workshops providing information on the latest job-search strategies, financial tips during times of transition, and how-to information and considerations about starting a business are also scheduled.

This year, we are very pleased to announce Skanska-Shimmick-Herzog (SSH) as the presenting sponsor of the 2013 Career and Community Resource Fair. Skanska-Shimmick-Herzogis the joint venture firm awarded the contract to build the 10-mile BART extension from Warm Springs to Berryessa Road in San Jose by the Valley Transportation Authority (VTA). They are expected to engage over $100 million of work for women and minority owned businesses that are California Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certified. As a key contributor to such an important local infrastructure project, SSH believes it has an obligation to reach out to local businesses with the intent to engage a substantial number of such entities for key components of the project. They are delighted to be partnering with the Fremont Chamber of Commerce in furthering their outreach efforts to local businesses, and will be at the Fair to provide further information about the opportunities available.

Additional services available during the Fair include one-on-one resume review (provided by One Stop Career Center and other local HR professionals) and one-on-one business start-up counseling (provided by SCORE counselors and small business owners).

Appointments are suggested for resume reviews and business start-up counseling to ensure that those interested will be able to be seen. Walk-ins will be taken only if available time slots remain. Interested parties should contact Nina Moore at the Fremont Chamber of Commerce: (510) 795-2244.
