350-Plus Jobs Up for Grabs at Santa Clarita WorkSource Center
The Santa Clarita WorkSource Center at College of the Canyons is currently working with a number of local employers to identify qualified candidates and help fill more than 350 open positions in the distribution/fulfillment (shipping and receiving) and manufacturing industries.
Available positions range from entry level to advanced skill labor and upper management, with most jobs located right here in Santa Clarita or nearby San Fernando Valley. While many of the positions are entry level, a number of employers have expressed a need for candidates with a manufacturing/distribution background, as well as management/supervisor experience.
Through June and July, the WorkSource Center will host recruitment events to assist jobseekers interested in these positions, while also continuing to collect resumes and match potential candidates with local employers through its online database.
The next job recruitment event will take place at 9 a.m. Thursday, June 28, in the Santa Clarita WorkSource Center, located inside the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center, on the college’s Valencia campus (University Center Drive entrance).
The event will be focused on filling a number of seasonal (six-month-long) manufacturing positions including: packers, forklift drivers, machine operators, quality inspectors, general warehouse personnel and line leads. Wages range from $8.50 to $14.50 an hour.
Potential candidates are asked to arrive before 9 a.m., and if selected for screening should be prepared to stay throughout the morning/afternoon.
