Final Atwater Village Job Readiness Workshop completed... now, come to the Job and Resource Fair!

Last week, we held the last in our series of Job Readiness Workshops at Chevy Chase Park in Atwater Village. These free events provided information to people about how to qualify and prepare for construction jobs.

This workshop was led by Rene Jann Whelston-Brooks of the Construction Trade Council and Jane Templin from Electrics Training Institute. Our guest speaker informed the participants about apprenticeships opportunities, career paths in construction, how to prepare for a job interview, how to create a resume, strategies for getting and keeping a job, and how to join a union.

On Saturday, September 19, we will host a Job and Resource Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Chevy Chase Recreation Center.
