A panel of employers will speak on the topic "The 21st Century World of Work," exclusively for Solyndra employees and affected contractors at the Tri-Cities One-Stop Career Center on Friday, January 25. The free event, which requires pre-registration, includes lunch, an employer panel, guest speaker, networking opportunities, and will provide job seekers up-to-date strategies for 21st Century career success. The event takes place from noon to 2 p.m. in the Tri-Cities One-Stop, Room 1211 on the Ohlone College Newark Center campus, 39399 Cherry Street in Newark.
All of the approximately 1100 Solyndra employees and contractors affected by the closure, whether currently employed or not, are invited to the event and also to take advantage of the many valuable career transition services provided by the Tri-Cities One-Stop. These services include funds for on-the-job and skillstraining, no-cost online education programs, online or on-site resume writing, LinkedIn and social networking training, and free classes which focus on career success strategies. Contact the Tri-Cities One-Stop Career Center, attend a consultation, and enroll in the federally-funded Solyndra Workforce Investment Act program for free.
If you know a former Solyndra employee or contractor, share the information about the opportunities available at the Tri-Cities One-Stop Career Center at Ohlone College Newark. If they are currently working, they may be underemployed and still require the services of career counselors assigned exclusively to Solyndra workers.
