National City Chamber to Host its 2nd Virtual Job Fair
Get ready for the SOUTH BAY Virtual Job Fair hosted on ZOOM
(National City, Ca – July 16, 2020) - San Diego area employers from healthcare services, biotech, retail, government agencies, and essential services are invited to attend the 2nd virtual South Bay Job Fair. The employment fair will take place on July 16 from 9:30 AM to 1:30 pm via ZOOM. “Communities have been hit very hard by the effects of Covid-19 and National City is one of the hardest hit communities by this and by the economic downturn. Union Bank is committed to help by supporting the employment fair as a way to connect community members with jobs,” shares Rana Sampson, event sponsor and Director of Community Relations of Southern California Union Bank.
Employers are hiring for local jobs, available now! Employment opportunities are available in management positions, as well as high tech to manufacturing and entry level retail and hospitality. “The most impactful way to regain our quality of life is through meaningful employment and stimulation of our local economies. We continue to see unemployment figures rise during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we need to act now, to ensure the vitality of our communities,” shares Jacqueline Reynoso, President/ CEO of the National City Chamber of Commerce and founder of this annual workforce development program.
The job fair is organized by the National City Chamber of Commerce in partnership with South County Business Services, San Diego Career Centers, Employment Development Department (EDD), Southwestern College, and San Diego Workforce Partnership. Since the job fair’s inception in 2011, National City’s unemployment rate had dropped significantly from 20% to 4.5% in pre COVID-19 conditions. Unfortunately, we are seeing unprecedented unemployment figures, with the nation reporting rates as high as 25% in some US cities, and upwards of 35% in National City. “In response to these challenging and unprecedented times, we need to adapt and continue to support our workforce development initiatives - creating virtual connections between employers and prospective employees,” shares Christine Perri, event chair and Dean of Southwestern College’s Higher Education Center at National City.
Those attending the job fair are encouraged to prepare with an updated resume, dress to impress in professional attire (at home for virtual appearance), and project a positive attitude. In addition, Andrea Matiz, South County Career Center Manager, shares, “It’s important for job seekers to take the time to research companies and job openings they are applying to, and follow up with them after the Job Fair.” Taking initiative and expressing enthusiasm makes a positive first impression.
Attendees will have the opportunity to talk to potential employers via ZOOM and obtain career information. Free access to facilitate online application registration, now the standard in HR recruitment, will be made available through employer presentations scheduled from 10 AM- 1 PM on July 16 via ZOOM.
