New Program Prepares People for Entry-Level Employment

In response to the problems many of our members are having with hiring, we are offering members and partners a new tool to find those hard-to-find candidates.

Our chamber is working with a coalition of North County business organizations to provide online, on-demand basic skills training to better prepare the workforce for employment for general office administration, manufacturing, and the food and hospitality industries. The program is designed for community members who are brand-new to the workforce, have been out of the workforce for a while and need ‘upskilling,’ have struggled to find work or even land an interview, or who are experiencing other barriers to employment.

Your candidates who complete the basic skills training (15-20 hours) at one of our local libraries, partner site, or at home are guaranteed at least one entry-level job interview with a local employer like you. Potential talent may also receive in-person interview practice and resume writing services through one of our partners prior to meeting with you.

By November 10th when the coalition will launch the ‘Room,’ employers can register to participate in our job-readiness network to connect with trained and certified talent for interviews. Interviews can take place at your place of business or can be booked through Victoria Carlborg at the chamber as a micro-hiring event for a small room reservation fee.

List and view open positions and resumes on www.OceansideCareers.com. And we invite you to check out our coalition’s SOCAL career video project that showcases some of our North County employers in the manufacturing and food and hospitality industries as well as administrative roles. All of these companies are hiring now and are also interested in preparing students and transitioning adults for employment at their companies and organizations.

No Cost Tips to Save Energy and Money

(Source: SDG&E) - Looking for ways to save on your energy bill? Check out these energy tips that don’t cost you a thing.

​1. Talk with your family, friends and neighbors to find out how they conserve energy. This can help you identify additional things you can do in your home to save. You may discover hidden energy costs, figure out how to eliminate them and learn from each other's good habits.

2. If you have a second refrigerator, unplug it when it’s not in use. (Save up to $155/year)An older refrigerator uses nearly twice as much energy as new efficient models. You pay more to run your spare, older appliance than your primary one in the kitchen. If you only need the extra space around the holidays or you're a renter and can't recycle the landlord's refrigerator, simply unplug it when you don't need it.
