Job Resources Fair for underserved populations

On Monday, September 23, from 11:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., join East Bay Career Link for the Underserved at Hayward City Hall along with Community Resources for Independent Living, the Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women and several Alameda County organizations for the Job Resources Fair co-sponsored by the City of Hayward. The 2nd Annual Job Resources Fair in Hayward will be serving low income, the re-entry population, veterans, single parents, persons with functional limitations, seniors, former foster youth and English language learners to provide a path to employability and self-reliance for underserved communities throughout the Bay Area. This is the mission of its collaborative organizing group: the East Bay Career Link for the Underserved (East Bay CLU).

Keynote speaker Mike May's story is depicted in the best-selling book "Crashing Through: A True Story of Risk, Adventure, and the Man Who Dared to See." Mr. May will be available to autograph copies of his book after our opening ceremony from 11:30-12noon. Among many accomplishments as an entrepreneur, Mr. May also holds the world record as the fastest blind down-hill speed skier! You can reserve your copy of Mike May's book with The Book Shop in Hayward by calling (510) 538-3943.

Attendees will receive free childcare services on site (rsvp required for reservation), vision screening, resume development, financial literacy, web-based application training, participation in mock interviews with local business owners and education on the various resources available to job seekers. Panel discussions will be available in English and Spanish. We welcome and encourage local businesses to attend as panel speakers, as potential job opportunities or as interviewers for mock interviews on site.
