You're invited: Job Fair, July 14

In today's economy, almost everyone knows someone looking for a job, and many people are looking for work themselves. As a member of Congress, I see my constituents struggling to find work in an economy that is slowly recovering from one of the greatest recessions in our nation's history. Although we face many pressing problems, getting people back to work needs to be at the top of our priority list.I know firsthand how difficult it can be to pass meaningful jobs legislation. Bipartisan bills that create and preserve jobs are stuck in today's Washington stalemate. As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, I have continued to advocate for programs that create jobs and protect my constituents who have been laid off as they look for new work. While there may be a legislative stalemate in Congress on jobs legislation, there are still things we can do to get people back to work. In my district, I want to make sure people who are looking for work are connecting with companies that are hiring. That's why I'm hosting a free job fair in our community. FREE JOB FAIR July 14, 2012 9 am - 1 pm Salt Lake Park 3401 E. Florence Avenue, Huntington Park, 90255

The fair will give people the opportunity to learn about full and part time jobs available in the area. Workshops on how to improve your resume and interview skills will be provided, as well as special information for veterans. The job openings include: drivers, teachers, teaching assistants, accounting, customer service, clerical, sales associates, cashiers, managers, manufacturing, warehouse, production, assemblers, technicians, retail sales, certified nursing assistants, medical assistants, security officers, machine operators, apprenticeship programs and more. Come dressed in business attire with copies of your resume. If you have any further questions, please visit my website at or call my office at (213) 628-9230. I look forward to seeing you on July 14.
