Job Resources

As our economy recovers from the 2009 recession, employment opportunities in California continue to increase. Unfortunately, our state’s unemployment rate still remains high, which means there are people in search of a job. I know that it can be challenging and stressful to look for employment during these tough times, so to ease some of the stress, I have compiled a list of resources both locally and statewide that can assist in your job search efforts.
