On Wednesday, July 9, 2014 from 10am to 1pm, a job fair for veteran job seekers, active duty military members, guard and reserve members, and military spouses will take place at Lane County Armed Forces Reserve Center, 3106 Pierce Parkway, Springfield, OR 97477.
Catholic Community Services Springfield Center is hosting a Cooking Matters class for low-income community members beginning July 8th in the Springfield Community Room. This class is sponsored by FOOD For Lane County (FFLC) and is a wonderful opportunity to learn about cooking nutritious meals on a budget. Participants leave with ingredients to prepare the meals demonstrated.
If you're over 50 years old, live in Lane County, have a high school diploma (or GED), understand basic computer skills and hold a National Career Readiness Certificate, you might want to consider a career in the financial services industry.
If you're interested, this short-term training program developed by Lane Community College, WorkSource Lane, and Lane County banks and credit unions could open up opportunities in the industry.
Lane Community College will hold its 24th Annual Job Fair on Thursday, April 17, from 10am to 2pm at the Center for Meeting and Learning, Building 19, main campus, 4000 E. 30th Avenue, Eugene.
This is a free event open to the public. Career and Employment Advisor Tina Hunter recommends that people come dressed as if they would for a job interview and bring their resume, and prepare your elevator speech. Participants can enter to win door prizes, including a free three-credit class, gift cards to the Titan Store and lunch for two at the Renaissance Room.
In partnership with Lane County Emergency Management, 211info will be available 8am-6pm today so that Lane County residents still without power and experiencing hardship can be provided information and assistance for obtaining essential resources.
Residents can simply dial 211 toll-free, text their zip code to 898211, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
After a week off from posting events, this week's events listing is bursting at the pixels. We have a ton of great summer events for the family, we have cooking classes, we have educational opportunities and we have great Work Source event info to name a few.
It's a mixed bag of events this week. There are a couple of listings for veterans, an interesting one for single moms and the always-awesome Project Homeless Connect. As I mentioned in the title, there's even a webinar! Enjoy.
