The City of Long Beach and the Pacific Gateway Workforce Investment Network are hosting an Employment Expo on Saturday, Nov. 14 from 9am to noon at Cesar E. Chavez Park, 401 Golden Ave.
“We put this event together because we know it is a tough time for many people in Long Beach,” said 1st District Councilman Robert Garcia. “This event will be a great way to connect with career services, as well as learn about new educational opportunities.”
Adults who would like to go back to school, earn their diploma, earn specific occupational skills training and certifications, or get help starting a new career may also benefit from the Expo. Young adults ages 14 to 24 who would like work experience, want to learn how to find employment opportunities or find out more about leadership development and mentoring will likely also find this Expo helpful.
“I encourage everyone to bring the required documents with them so that they can access these free employment and training services immediately,” said Bryan Rogers, the Network’s executive director.
Attendees should bring any combination of the following documents to register at the Expo:
1. State ID/driver license AND Social Security card; or
2. School ID card (with birth date) AND Social Security card; or
3. School ID card (without birth date) AND Social Security Card AND birth certificate; or
4. U.S. passport AND any proof of Social Security number (Social Security card, school printout)
If applicable, attendees should bring an unexpired Permanent Resident Card (Green Card). Males born on or after January 1, 1960, must be registered with the Selective Service.
