Youth Focused Job and Resource Fair to Set Up Shop in Santa Barbara

The Santa Barbara County Workforce Investment Board, along with the Santa Barbara County Youth Council, the California Employment Development Department, the City of Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation Department and United Way will be hosting the second annual Youth Focused Job and Resource Fair.

The fair will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with the official opening ceremony at noon, on Thursday, March 27 at the Westside Community Center, 423 W. Victoria St. in Santa Barbara.

We expect to have more than 200 job seekers in attendance, with 35 to 40 employers hiring for multiple job positions.

Many other local public and private organizations have been invited to attend and will be available to share their valuable resource information. With success, this event will be the first of many job fairs to come throughout Santa Barbara County.

The event is youth-focused; but it is open to all job seekers.

For more information or if you are a business owner who would like to register for this event, please call Luis Servin, SBWIB's business services coordinator, at 805.681.4643 or Linda Hillman, SBWIB deputy director, at 805.681.4784.

— Luis Servin is a business services coordinator for the Santa Barbara County Workforce Investment Board.

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!
