Editor, the Advocate:
On April 18th, Workforce Solution Golden Crescent held a very successful job fair. Forty employers and over 1,000 applicants attended the event. Very few times will so many potential employers be under the same roof at the same time than at a job fair.
On behalf of the Golden Crescent Workforce Development Board, I would like to thank the Employer Support of Guard and Reserve, Texas Veterans Commission, Texas Workforce Commission, Workforce Solutions Alamo, Coastal Bend, Middle Rio and South Texas for their support. Bill Wendlandt for the use of his facility. KAVU Newscenter 25 for co-sponsoring and promoting the event. To KIXS, KITE, KVIC, the Victoria Advocate and all the participating employers and job seekers.
Finally, thanks to the staff of Workforce Solutions, who made copies of resumes, assisted with online applications, directed traffic, lugged 40-pound tables and did it all with a smile.
Henry Guajardo, Victoria
