This joint undertaking will provide meaningful opportunities for employment, professional development, networking and access to Veteran Service Organizations (VSO’s) to meet the needs of this underserved population.
Seventy-five public and private employers will be recruiting and hiring during the job fair. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 26, at the Carson Civic Center, 801 E. Carson Street, Carson, CA 90745.
Metro and its partners recommend all applicants wear business-type clothing, bring copies of updated resumes and be ready to provide information such as employment history and other pertinent facts during job interviews.
Metro’s Measure M program is spurring the largest public infrastructure expansion in the United States. With four major transportation construction projects underway and 50 percent of Metro’s workforce eligible for retirement by 2024, Metro already faces the challenge of filling positions in construction, management, project management, contract administration, maintenance, operations and many other positions.
Metro has found that Veterans are a good and reliable pool of job seekers who have received exceptional training in leadership and technical skills that make them uniquely qualified to learn to perform many types of jobs.
