Jaime Herrera Beutler announced today that 57 employers have confirmed their participation in her September 28 jobs fair.  The event’s latest employer additions include Boeing, Northwest Natural Products, Legacy Health, and several others.

This free event for job seekers, which Jaime will host in-person from 1:00 – 6:00 pm at the Red Lion at the Quay in Vancouver, will bring together Southwest Washington employers looking for qualified candidates to hire.  Employers range from small to large businesses and organizations, and span across multiple industries.  A complete list of participating employers can be found below.

“With so many looking for work in our region, I’m encouraged that such a large number of employers are interested in filling jobs.  Hopefully even more will sign up by September 28,” said Herrera Beutler.  “This jobs fair is just one way to help job seekers in Southwest Washington.  Whether it’s with a jobs fair, policy solution, or a reform to a federal regulation, I remain committed to tackling unemployment with every resource available to me.”

TODAY’S JOB SEEKER TIP:  Networking with others – especially those with the power to hire – is essential.  80 percent of available jobs are not even advertised,
according to Cornell University’s Career Center.
