Description

We would like to invite you to our “Fair Chance Hiring Event and Resources EXPO” Hosted by Rio Hondo America’s Job Center of California (AJCC), the Invest staff and partners, committed to Reducing Barriers to Reentry and Employment for Formerly Incarcerated Individuals.

This event is part of the effort to increase access to, and opportunities for, the employment, education, training, and support services for individuals with barriers to employment, which they need to succeed in the labor market. One of these barriers is involvement with the justice system, making the INVEST probation population a priority to connect with employers and resources.

We plan to have more than 45 Fair Chance Employers with actual job openings accepting employment applications

What to bring...

You should bring plenty of resumes, as you will be giving them directly to the hiring managers at each company. If you have a multi-page resume, make sure your name and contact information is on each page. Be organized with supplies you might need i.e. pens, paper, business cards, etc.


How long should you spend at the job fair...

You can spend as little or as long as you want at the show. In one hour you should be able to speak with at least ten companies or more.


What do I do at the job fair?

Walk up to each company, introduce yourself, shake their hand, give them a resume and tell them about yourself. These people want to hear you talk and see if you can listen as well. Tell them about your success at your current or last job, describe your job duties and how you can help themHow
