LAUSD staff recruit job seekers at the Canoga Park WorkSource Center 2022 Fall Community Job Fair
In partnership with the California Employment Development Department (EDD) and the Canoga Park WorkSource Center (WSC), the EWDD Employer Services Unit recently held a hugely successful job fair attended by more than 220 job seekers and more than 40 employers.

“I couldn’t let the week go by without expressing my heartfelt thanks to each and everyone one of you, for the support and assistance each of you provided to ensure we had a successful Job Fair event!” said Alexis Carter, Deputy Division Chief of the California EDD LA/Coastal Workforce Services Division.

The Canoga Park WSC location is temporarily closed, so the event was held at the West Valley Occupational Center. The event was designed to remind the community that while the Canoga Park WSC does not currently have a storefront, the WSC is still open to provide valuable resources to the community.

Virtual services and limited in-person services are available while the WSC transitions to a new location. The Canoga Park WSC is operated by EWDD contractor Equus Workforce Solutions.

EWDD’s WorkSource Centers offer free job training, resume assistance, and skill training and placement services to local job seekers. Centers also offer a variety of employment, training and support services to LA businesses. Learn about the many programs and benefits offered through our Employment Services and WorkSource Centers.
