El Cajon –  Following the release of new economic data today, Congressman Duncan Hunter announced that he will host a second community job fair in conjunction with the East County Career Center.  The event – which follows the success of Congressman Hunter’s 2009 Job Fair -- is scheduled for February 19, 2010, at 9 AM PT to noon PT at the Ronald Reagan Community Center in El Cajon.

“Economic data released today shows that the national unemployment rate remains at 10 percent,” said Congressman Hunter.  “In San Diego County, there is an equal part of our community seeking employment everyday and we must continue doing all we can to help restore our workforce. 

“The last job fair was a tremendous success, bringing together nearly 50 area businesses and more than a thousand job seekers.  This upcoming event provides prospective job candidates another opportunity to speak with representatives of various businesses and industries about their interests and qualifications.”

Businesses interested in participating in this event must return a completed  REGISTRATION FORM to Congressman Hunter’s office.  Interested individuals are also encouraged to return a separate  REGISTRATION FORM.  Any inquires should be directed to Congressman Hunter’s El Cajon office at 619-448-5201.
