Saturday, Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard hosted a job fair at Salt Lake Park in Huntington Park. The fair featured 37 employers and drew over 850 local job seekers. Fourteen veteran services organizations, including the VA and LA District Director Dennis Kueva, offered special resources for job seeking veterans. The Mobile Vet Unit was also on site to review pending VA claims.

“As our economy continues to recover, it is important that we keep the focus on jobs,” said Congresswoman Roybal-Allard. “People are still struggling to find employment, and I’m glad we were able to connect so many local job seekers with employers today,” the Congresswoman added.

In addition to the 37 employers present, 3 apprenticeship programs were represented, and the Southeast Community Development Corporation mobile unit assisted job seekers with resumes, online job searches and printing resumes.
