Have you been on the job hunt but are finding that you aren’t getting a call back for an interview?

Eureka Parks & Recreation and the Betty Chinn Day Center are committed to empowering the members of our community and providing them with the tools to set them up for success.  Which is why they have partnered to create Pathway to Payday—a unique and innovative workshop that will only teach you how to FREE!best sell yourself on your application & how to best be prepared for an interview.

What makes this workshop unique, is that participants will get the opportunity to immediately put these skills to the test with on-site interviews with real employers looking to hire.

Representatives from the following organizations will be there:

  • St. Joseph Hospital
  • Farmers Insurance
  • Rita’s Margaritas & Mexican Grill
  • Sun Valley, Pierson’s

There will be free on-site childcare available, lunch, as well as interview attire if needed.

This free workshop series will take place over four sessions at the Betty Kwan Chinn Day Center at 133 7th Street in Eureka. Sessions take place Wednesday, April 26th, Friday April 28th, and Wednesday May 3rd, and Friday May 5th from 10am-1pm.
