Job fair aimed at local students

Virtual Career Connections event planned for April 8.|

Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) is one of several colleges and workforce services collaborating in April’s Virtual North Bay Regional Job Fair. Students, alumni and community job seekers are invited to take advantage of the broad audience and pool of resources created through the regional association, which includes Workforce Alliance of the North Bay; Sonoma County Job Link; Lake, Marin, Mendocino and Napa county colleges; and SRJC’s Career Hub. The event runs from noon to 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 8.

Registrants can explore businesses, apply for jobs, network and practice self-introductions.

Job seekers will have access to more than 75 North Bay businesses and recruiters. An interactive platform has been designed so that job seekers can network efficiently, entering one booth while maintaining ongoing conversations with others. Attendees are encouraged to dress for success and be prepared for interviews.

“The goal is to have job seekers enter these booths courageously, with questions, prepared to present themselves as career ready,” said SRJC Career Education Job Developer, Ann Mansfield, in a statement. “It is a virtual environment. Do you have those skills? Because it could be that the job you’re offered is in a virtual environment.”

Participants include agencies and business from government, healthcare, hospitality, fitness, technology, finance and more. A full list of participating employers will be available on the Career Hub website the first week in April.
