The City of Santa Clarita will host a free Job Academy and Mini Job Fair with the Valley Industry Association and College of the Canyons on Friday, September 21, 2012 and Friday, September 28, 2012, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Santa Clarita Activities Center, located at 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway.
The Job Academy and Mini Job Fair will provide employment readiness training and referral assistance for Santa Clarita youth, ages 16 to 21. Space is limited so participants must register to attend the Job Academy by Monday, September 17, 2012.
“The Job Academy is a great event to prepare Santa Clarita teens and young adults for seasonal job opportunities and local entry-level employment,” says Mayor Frank Ferry. “Local employers will share invaluable information with participants such as ways to market themselves and stand out.”
Youth will work with a panel of local employers and learn how to apply and interview for local entry-level jobs opportunities through prep workshops and mock interviews. The Job Academy will provide information on how to write an employment application, when to apply and how to follow up.
Participating employers include AMS Fulfillment, Mountasia, Old Navy, Exact Staffing, and Job Corp. A Certificate of Completion will be awarded to participants who successfully complete and pass the two-day training workshop assignments.
