Career Resource, Job Fair for Ex-Offenders

Posted: Updated:

From Washoe County:

The Statewide Prisoner Reentry Coalition will host a two-step career resource and job fair for ex-offenders in Reno and Sparks during the month of March. An Ex-Offender Career Resource Fair is scheduled for March 5th at the Evelyn Mount Northeast Community Center, and a Job Fair for ex-offenders will be held March 26th at Baldini's Sports Casino. 

Ex-offenders face many barriers upon release from incarceration. The purpose of the Ex-Offender Career Resource and Job Fairs are to provide ex-offenders with the opportunity to connect with useful re-entry and faith-based organizations, along with other community agencies that will help provide referrals and resources to enhance their employment opportunities.

"With the new and improved structure of our career fair I believe this will be one of Reno's best events for ex-offenders," said John Collins, Workforce Development Coordinator of the Ridge House.

           Wednesday, March 5, 2014
           Location: Evelyn Mount Northeast Community Center
           1301 Valley Rd, Reno, NV 89512
           Time: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00p.m.


          Wednesday, March 26, 2014
          Location: Baldini's Sports Casino, Second Floor (North Entrance)
          865 S Rock Blvd, Sparks, NV 89431
          Time: 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

The Career Resource Fair on Wednesday, March 5th will prepare job seekers for the job fair by providing free assistance with résumés, interview skills & on-site mock job interviews. In addition, a variety of free symposiums will be offered to include: application etiquette, dress for success, financial management & job readiness.

The goal of the Job Fair on Wednesday March 26th is to provide job seekers with the opportunity to meet with many local employers from a wide variety of industries.

Potential employers could become part of the federal bonding program and receive federal tax credits by hiring ex-offenders.  The Reentry Coalition is asking for local businesses and organizations to help these ex-offenders by taking part in these events. Even companies that do not have job opening at this time are a vital to this process by sharing information about their company, helping people in our community with their search for employment and fostering a greater sense of community.

The Statewide Prisoner Reentry Coalition thanks all of our partners and the community for their continued support.
