ROSEVILLE, CA - A new series of job workshops are set to begin Tuesday morning at the Roseville Connections Center. Over the past two years, about 400 people have attended the workshop. And according to those who run the event, 78% of the attendees found jobs with the average salary being $55,000 per year.
The workshop pairs the unemployed with employers. Attendees are taught the importance of social media, networking, and how it all plays a role in landing a job.
Organizers call their approach different and unique.
They also work with the underemployed, such as those who may have had hours scaled back, or are working part-time when they should be working full-time.
The workshop is meant for those interested in mid to upper level management. The average age of the attendees is 48.
