Express Employment Professionals to Host Pay It Forward Hiring Drive for Holidays

The Express Employment Professionals office in Santa Barbara will host a Pay It Forward Hiring Drive to put 50 unemployed individuals to work this holiday season.

The goal of this drive is to help give encouragement and purpose to as many job seekers as possible by providing them the opportunity to earn a week’s worth of pay and help provide for their families during the holidays.

By joining Express in this hiring effort, employers will gain a qualified worker and give the gift of employment to an individual who would otherwise not work during the weeks of November and December. Express associates are screened and evaluated before being placed in short- and long-term assignments in a variety of administrative, professional and commercial positions.  For every associate placed, Express will make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network.

“Pay It Forward means working with local businesses to help find jobs for unemployed workers in our community so they can earn a paycheck and help support their families this season,” said Karen Dwyer, owner of the Santa Barbara Express office. “Our vision is to lock arms with businesses in Santa Barbara to bring hope to local families for the holidays.”

This program will provide businesses with the additional support often needed during a busy time of the year while helping someone provide for their family.

Companies and individuals interested in participating in the Pay iI Forward Hiring Drive can call the Santa Barbara office at 805.965.6900 for additional information.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
