The October 2023 East & Central Regional Connect LA job fair held at the Northeast L.A. WorkSource Center managed by Goodwill Southern California
EWDD’s Workforce Development System has made progress in increasing employment activities to revitalize the economy post-pandemic. The Workforce Development System noticed the difficulties employers are experiencing in finding the right candidate to meet the needs of their businesses. To support them and job applicants, EWDD has been leading planning committees to host Connect LA Job Fairs, which are held regionally throughout the city every quarter. These job fairs have created opportunities for employers to gain access to qualified candidates and for applicants to become employed.

The East & Central Regional Connect LA job fair was held on October 18, 2023, at the Northeast Los Angeles WorkSource Center, managed by EWDD partner Goodwill Southern California. The fair included over 350 job seekers and 39 employers from several of LA’s prominent industry sectors, such as transportation, security, healthcare, and more.
