13 Employers, More Than 36 Openings at Rancho Cordova Job Fair

On Thursday, October 3rd,  Assemblyman Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova) helped 43 people connect with local employers currently filling open positions during his job fair in Rancho Cordova.

Hosted at the Cordova Neighborhood Church with support from the Folsom Cordova Community Partnership, attendees were able to talk with 13 organizations currently hiring for more than 36 positions in manufacturing, operations, maintenance, and sales and customer service.

“Today’s competitive market has made finding a job harder than it has ever been in your life,” said Cooley. “By being here to talk face to face with employers, you are giving yourself a competitive edge to hear what they are really looking for and creating an impression that could lead to a good career.”

In addition to talking with local employers, attendees were able to get coaching during two workshops on resume building and interview techniques.
