New center will bring employers to job-seekers
To try to create more job opportunities for people with disabilities and vocational disadvantages, the Santa Clarita WorkSource has joined with Santa Clarita’s Goodwill to offer local residents an expanded array of services.
With the WorkSource’s resources and Goodwill’s experience in career management and workforce development, both companies hope to accommodate both job-seekers and employers.
Employers will receive help finding candidates and screening prospective employees, while job seekers will get help preparing resumes, getting interviews and taking classes toward retraining or upgrading of skills.
Some people think this synergy of local businesses and residents creates positive
economic energy and builds strong communities.
In 2006 fiscal year, the Center served more than 1,600 local residents and placed 264 into community employment. Both Goodwill and WorkSource insist the new location and expanded resources will increase the Center's reach and strengthen Santa Clarita's economy even further.
