Hundreds of qualified job applicants will have the opportunity to pursue high-quality employment opportunities during the 2018 East Valley Regional Job Fair on Thursday, June 14, at the National Orange Show in San Bernardino.
The annual job fair is one of the biggest in San Bernardino County, connecting growing businesses with prospective employees from throughout the region. Hosted by the County’s Workforce Development Board (WDB), this year’s East Valley Regional Job Fair will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in the Renaissance Room, 689 S. E St.
Job seekers are encouraged to dress professionally and bring plenty of resumes.
The 2018 East Valley Regional Job Fair comes amid more strong news about the county’s economic prospects. A recent study conducted on behalf of the WDB projects employment in the county to increase by 73,000 jobs over the next decade, bolstered by a strong mix of businesses poised to expand and a relatively young, increasingly well-trained workforce.
“This is an exciting time for San Bernardino County. Our economy is growing, businesses are expanding and job opportunities are presenting themselves in greater numbers than ever,” said Tony Myrell, chairman of the WDB. “Job fairs such as this are among the many ways the WDB connects businesses with a skilled labor force. All of this supports a strong, vibrant economy by encouraging business growth and creating opportunities for job seekers.”
