Things are busy at Pacific Reentry Career Services, and we have been hard at work launching programs and helping support the reentry community. We have begun working with clients, are planning for our first Fair Chance Hiring Summit and making important connections that we hope will lead to successful opportunities for the job seekers we serve. We wanted to take a moment to share information on some upcoming events.
Fair Chance Hiring Summit
Wednesday, June 7, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. • Irvine One-Stop Career Center
This summit is a chance for employers to learn more about the benefits of hiring the formerly incarcerated. We will have a presentation on background checks and hiring best practices by Attorney Jeffrey Malek of Malek & Malek, a panel with employers who have had success with fair chance hiring and breakout groups for attendees to share their questions and experiences. This event is ideal for HR professionals, hiring managers and business owners. The summit is free, but space is limited, so registration is required. Visit our summit page for more information and to register.
Orange County's 3rd Annual Re-Entry Resource Fair
Tuesday, June 13, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. • Honda Center, 2695 E. Katella Ave., Anaheim
This event is put on by the Orange County Re-Entry Partnership (OCREP). The resource fair will include community resources, education opportunities and more. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the programs and services that support the formerly incarcerated in our community. All formerly incarcerated people and their families are welcome to attend this free event. Please do not bring children. For more information or to participate as a vendor, contact OCREP at 657-859-9444 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be there, and we hope to see you there too.
