Last year, both the City and County proclaimed September Workforce Development Month in San Diego. It’s only fitting that this September was filled with job fairs to connect San Diego job seekers and employers.
On September 16, 493 job seekers networked with 50 employers during a community job fair hosted by SDWP, the America’s Job Center of California network, the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation and other regional workforce partners. Employers included the San Diego Police Department, Macy’s, Goodwill, Ace Parking, San Diego County Credit Union, UC San Diego, Direct TV, San Ysidro Health Center and Partnerships With Industry. “This was one of the best career fairs we have attended. There was a good turn out, quality was there and many came prepared with résumés,” said Partnerships With Industry Branch Manager Jordan Gonzalez.
On September 18, nearly 360 job seekers gathered at the Mid-City Gymnasium in City Heights for Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s San Diego Career Expo. This public event brought together over 35 employers, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies to present a wide array of career opportunities for San Diego residents. Employment opportunities ranged from entry-level positions to those needing a degree or experience. The focus was on jobs and careers in local government, innovation, public safety, technology and skilled trades. Lines grew long at the CONNECT2Careers (C2C) table where the team provided résumé reviews and mock interviews.
On September 19, One San Diego hosted the San Diego Hotel Career Connection Day. High school students were paired up with several hotels to gain valuable insight into San Diego’s booming hospitality industry. The students visited hotels to learn about the workings of the hospitality industry, potential internships and future careers opportunities through observation and hands-on experiences. C2C leveraged local school relationships to help with youth outreach, student recruitment and volunteer signups for the event. Twenty students from each of the following schools were invited to attend: San Diego High School, Crawford High School, Morse High School, Hoover High School, Lincoln High School, Southwest High School, Montgomery High School, San Ysidro High School.
C2C finished out their summer season strong with a large retail job fair at the San Diego Outlets at the Border as well as with two Harmonium hiring events for positions in education and child development.

I can earn a true living wage again, and most importantly, do work I genuinely enjoy that makes a difference! It wouldn’t have been possible if I hadn’t found the downtown Metro Career Center and Zuri!

Interviews can be scary, but stepping in there prepared can help ease your nerves. During my early college years, I was completely lost when it came to preparing for interviews. Now, that I’ve had many interviews since then, I know what to expect, and hope some of this information can help you out.
Keep reading for my interview tips.

There’s a new book out on working mothers—I Know How She Does It, by Laura Vanderkam. Ms. Vanderkam took a data-based approach to the issue of how women manage both a career and children. She asked women in highly paid professional jobs who also have children to keep hourly records of what they did every day for about three years.
Her book makes the case that the women she studied—all of whom were mothers with children still at home who earned at least $100,000 per year—actually don’t have such rough lives. While they may not “have it all,” they have a lot. They are not stress-free, but they are pretty satisfied with their lives.
Ms. Vanderkam’s website promotes the book as follows:
