Veteran? And/or, over 40? What’s your career future? West Seattle Rotary announces an event to help

Announcing this event for November 3rd, the Rotary Club of West Seattle wants to be clear – it’s not a job fair, but instead, a career workshop. For veterans – and workers over 40, whether you’re a veteran or not – this could be invaluable in helping you plot your career plan from here on out. Here’s the announcement:

If you are a veteran or an adult aged 40=plus, and you are seeking information about really good jobs that need qualified workers, jobs that will continue to grow in need of skilled qualified workers, plan on attending the Occupational Resource Fair on the South Seattle Community College campus on the morning of Saturday, November 3rd.

This event is planned by two members of the Rotary Club of West Seattle Vocational Committee and two South Seattle Community College (SSCC) staff members from WorkForce and WorkSource offices.

“We want to provide a one stop shop for veterans and mature adults wanting assistance in developing their individual career plans”, says Cathy Rouyer, Rotarian.

The announcement continues ahead:

“This is not a job fair but a time to hear and receive information from experts about what jobs will provide a career now and into the future, “ adds Jan Secor, Rotarian.

The occupational fields highlighted at this event are Manufacturing and Industry, Business Information Technology, and Health. These are the three fields of growth determined by the most recent data analysis and report from the Washington Department of Employment Security Data.

“Veterans and mature adults wanting to restart their lives and careers with occupations that offer good pay and benefits and demand for qualified employees now and into the future may find what they are looking for at this event, “ according to Jan Secor and Cathy Rouyer.

This event is free but space is limited. Doors will open at 8:30 am on Nov. 3.
