The 2011 event at the Antelope Valley Mall drew more than 5,000 people.

“We’re definitely trying to insure that the employers who attend are hiring, so we will have employers who will have at least five positions available” says Claudia Hernandez, Account Executive at JVS’ WorkSource Services. “Last year a lot of people got hired from the event.”

Attendees should bring resumes and be dressed professionally and prepared to interview. They will have the opportunity to meet directly with employers and speak to experienced recruiters.
