“Looking for work is a difficult and often frustrating experience. We want to help make the process easier by hosting these events to provide an opportunity for job seekers to meet face-to-face with employers looking for new hires in the Valley. This event will be free and open to veterans, active military, students and the public,” Rep. Denham said.

“Our job fair will feature Central Valley employers seeking new hires in a wide range of fields. Employers will be accepting resumes and meeting with interested applicants throughout the fair. We’re also coordinating efforts with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s ‘Hiring Our Heroes’ program and Google’s ‘NetVets’ program to provide job search resources to help ease our returning service members’ transition into the civilian workforce and put our veterans to work,” he added.
