The City of Eureka’s Pathway to Payday is a four-day employment workshop that takes place in partnership with the Betty Kwan Chinn Day Center. This event focuses on the enhancement of application, resume & interview skills, & offers participants the opportunity to interview with real employers for real jobs, receiving tangible feedback that they can apply to future interviews.
To date, Pathway to Payday has garnered a 90+% success rate with participants who complete all four days receiving either a second interview or a job offer.
This week, 23 of our valued community members completed the December 2019 Pathway to Payday event while 22 of these individuals received either a second interview or a job offer. Further, the participating businesses had overwhelmingly positive feedback about the candidates they interviewed.
Below are some excerpts from the participant surveys collected:
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 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
Rita’s Margaritas & Mexican Grill
Sun Valley, Pierson’s
Express Employment Professionals
North Coast Cleaning Services
Eureka Parks & Recreation
Workshop participants are not guaranteed a job, but they are guaranteed this great opportunity. Last year, nearly 90% of workshop attendees left with a job.

Did you know that reading to young children increases brain development at an early age and better prepares them for future learning?
Children who are read to at an early age are also more likely to be able to begin to read on time. Reading to infants allows for a social and emotional development that is vital for a happy and healthy family to flourish.
