Need a job? WorkSource Yakima has the hookup if you want to work
There must be a better word for it. Maybe you lost your job, maybe COVID fired you, maybe it’s your first job, or maybe you just need a better job, but either way , a job search is serious business.
The word I am questioning is “Righteous”. Although I currently don’t have a better term, I have always thought that the term “job fair” was a little too casual for the importance of a job for those who want to work. (where’s the cotton candy?)
But my semantic rant aside, the South Central Workforce Council and WorkSource Yakima will be hosting a job fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on August 18 at the Yakima Convention Center, 10 N 8th Street in downtown Yakima.
Help and registration
The job fair is free for job seekers 18 and over and job seekers are urged to prepare to network with their resumes in hand. What if this is your first job and you don’t have a resume or maybe you are looking to forget the past and start a new work history? If you need help writing your resume, WorkSource Yakima offers free workshops in advance at the career fair. Brilliant!

Organizers say COVID-19 safety protocol will be followed, tables will be socially distanced, and anyone not fully vaccinated will be required to wear a mask inside the center. And in tune with the times, as you can imagine, masks are strongly recommended for all participants regardless of their vaccination status.
