Event Description

WorkSource Pierce Business Services will host the "253 Oppotunities JOB FAIR" at Evergreen State College Campus at 1210 6th Ave, Tacoma WA. This Entry-Level JOB FAIR is FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC. One of the main focus's of this JOB FAIR is to provide second chance job opportunities to individuals with criminal records. We have had over 270 motivated job seekers attend previous similar events. With the economy growing and unemployment at the lowest levels in years, many companies are finding it more challenging to fill job openings. As many organizations have found out there are three (3) primary reasons to hire indivuals who have been involved in the criminal justice system. 1) Ex-offenders can help meet the demand for the hard-to-fill jobs, such as in construction, warehouse, transportation, sales, hospitality, health care and even government organizations. 2) Businesses believe in the importance of giving ex-offenders a second chance and helping them rebuild their lives. 3) Some organizations view hiring ex-offenders as a way to contribute to their local communities, keeping them safer by offering ex-offenders stable employmentas an alternative. Several employers praise the willingness of ex-offenders they hired. "Ex-offenders often work as hard, or harder than other employees and show appreciation for being given a SECOND CHANCE and to demonstrate their commited work values to the organization." Employers will be looking to hire top talent andare excited to discuss with any individuals with their brushes with the legal system.
