Santa Maria Job Fair Slated for Sept. 17

The California Employment Development Department and the Santa Barbara County Workforce Investment Board is collaborating with the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce, Workforce Resource Center, the Economic Development Commission, Allan Hancock College, the Santa Maria Teen Coalition, and other agencies and organizations to present the Santa Maria Job Fair.

The event is slated for 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17 at the Abel Maldonado Community Youth Center, 600 S. McClelland St. in Santa Maria. While youth focused, the event is open to job seekers of all ages.

“This job fair is being presented at the perfect time for both employers and job seekers,” said Bob Hatch, president and CEO of the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce. “Our local employers are looking for permanent and part-time employment prospects, as well as seasonal workers. This is a great opportunity to connect those employers with qualified job applicants.”

This is also the time when employers are starting to look at what their staffing needs might be for the upcoming holiday season, which starts earlier each year.

The Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce would like all local employers who are considering hiring to attend this job fair and to have a table at the event. To register, contact Veronica Orozco at the Employment Development Department at 805.568.1382, or call the Chamber of Commerce at 805.925.2403 x817 for the registration form.

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!
