California Assemblyman Mike Davis, 48th District, partnered with the Employment Development Department and Southeast LA-Crenshaw WorkSource Center, Mothers In Action, Los Angeles Sentinel and the Brotherhood Crusade to host the 3rd Annual Job Fair on Saturday, November 7, 2009, at the Wallis Annenberg Building in Exposition Park. Eleven hundred (1100) job seekers arrived early to meet the 75 employers. There were over 500 jobs to fill ranging from entry level to professional.
“I am thrilled with the number of corporations and employers who participated in our job fair this year. I know the importance of having a job and working your way to success. Employers were pleased to talk to and hire a large number of prepared and willing to work residents from our community. To make the application process, easy and immediate, a computer lab was provided by Dell Computer,” remarked Assemblyman Davis.
EDD Division Chief, Michael Dolphin further explains, “The State of California Employment Development Department is always willing and eager to participate in events that help connect job seekers with jobs and careers. We look forward to a continued and consistent partnership with Assemblyman Mike Davis and his office with the goal of helping our community to realize their opportunities even during this recession”.
Additional comments from Willa Robinson, EDD Deputy Division Chief states, “The attendance at the 48th District Job Fair demonstrates there is an employment and training need. The Assemblyman’s proactive role in bringing employers and resources to meet needs of the community is always appreciated. He identifies the resources necessary to make a positive impact.”
