Delano will also be having a job fest at Cesar E. Chavez High School from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m..

“Job fests are very beneficial to the community. They help people in need get a job. Job fests can help the community expand more. It can help people get better-paying jobs,” said Delano resident Valeria.

This will be a perfect way to connect with local employers and apply for many jobs. Free admission and parking will be provided. You will be required to bring copies of your resume or master’s application. Do note that children will not be permitted.

“Job fests are beneficial to the community as it allows an opportunity for an individual who does not know what career to pursue. The people allow different options and are also very detailed as to what you’d have to deal with if you were to join that workforce,” said Delano resident Joselyn Chavez. “Job fests allow more information on how to get to where you want to be in the career category and it also helps for others to know more about different jobs before committing to something. Job fests allow more things to think about and it does not limit what there is to pursue in the later future.”

Some of the employers that will be at the job fest are Community Action Partnership of Kern (CAPK), Kern Medical, Starbucks, Kern County Probation, Walmart, Labor and Contracting, Clinica Sierra, and many more.

“I believe job fests are beneficial to the community because they allow employers to look for employees. They allow for people to polish their resumes and practice their interviewing skills. They allow for people to meet representatives from industries at the same place and at the same time. They help people learn about future workshop opportunities,” said Delano resident Yesenia Marin.
