Job Seekers Urged to Network
by Bill Silverfarb
“(June 08, 2011) – It takes more than filling out an application or sending in a resume to land a job these days. In the down economy, U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier has made it a mission to give those out of work the tools they need to find success.
Yesterday, Speier, D-San Mateo, hosted her sixth local Job Hunters Boot Camp on the campus of the College of San Mateo with about 700 attending. Her first was back in January 2010 and she intends to keep putting on the events until they are no longer needed.
Her message to job hunters yesterday was to take advantage of the resources available to them and to make at least one meaningful contact with a prospective employer before the day ended.
More than 20 companies were represented at the event with several other resource tables set up to give job seekers advice on how to improve interview skills or how to land a job right out of college.
Finding jobs for recent graduates, veterans and mature workers was the focus of yesterday’s workshop.”
