April 23--Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler will host her fourth annual Southwest Washington Job Fair from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 14, at the Red Lion Hotel at the Quay in Vancouver, Wash.
Prior to the job fair, Beutler will host a workshop from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Friday, May 9, at the Vancouver Community Library to provide resume' and job hunting tips.
Both events are free to all Southwest Washington residents.
The job fair will include employers from a variety of industries seeking qualified candidates, according to Beutler.
Employers interested in participating can contact Pam Peiper in Beutler's Vancouver office at (360) 695-6292.
The job hunting workshop will include representatives from WorkSource, local human resources departments and hiring agencies. A panel discussion and individual one-on-one counseling will also be held at the workshop.
The panel will discuss resume' building, interviewing skills, networking and other important aspects of the job-seeking process.
"Even as Southwest Washington's economy recovers, residents tell me that employment is by far still their top priority. I'm pleased to host yet another jobs fair where people can find a job, or at least build the skills and contacts to help them land one soon," Beutler said in a news release. "My primary legislative focus in DC is still on helping our economy, and that's my focus right here at home, too. I'll do whatever I can to get people back to work."
