Tacoma Goodwill young adult job fair Oct. 28

A job fair with employers focusing on young adults will be held Weds., Oct. 28 in Tacoma Goodwill’s new Milgard Work Opportunity Center. The event is free and open to the public and will take place from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the REACH portion of the Milgard Center, 714 S. 27th St.

“We encourage participants to please dress professionally, bring extra resumes and be prepared to be interviewed on the spot, said Goodwill Youth Outreach Specialist Dee Quintanilla. “Besides finding out about local firms and government agencies, there’s also a chance to learn more about the programs available through Goodwill and REACH.”

Employers scheduled to be on hand include Commercial Driving Services (CDS), Exotic Metals, Marshalls, ACS, Menzies Aviation, Pre-Paid Legal Services, Mary Kay and The Unique Company. Other government agencies and educational institutions include Tacoma Community College, Job Corps, Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, and the Social Security Administration.

REACH, Resources for Education And Career Help, is a separate agency from Goodwill — a collaboration of 11 agencies providing workforce development services for young adults 16-24. REACH is located on the first two floors of the Milgard Center.
