Looking for a job in Hacienda Heights

The City of Industry’s Job Fair & Expo tomorrow is expected to draw thousands of job seekers.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday at the Industry Hills Expo Center, 16200 Temple Ave.

And organizers expect more than 2,000 people to look for jobs with 45 employers and exhibitors who will fill the center.

That’s compared to the 1,400 jobseekers who attended last year’s annual event.

“I expect a huge turnout, because of the fact that so many people have been laid off,” said Charlene Gregoroff, assistant to the CEO at BioTouch, a Walnut-based cosmetics company that produces permanent make-up.

But a large turnout could mean a “perfect market” of applicants to choose from to fill a communications position, sales jobs and expense manager position, she said.

BioTouch is one of many employers and job training organizations that will be on hand Tuesday.

They include 24 Hour Fitness, the LAPD and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Devry and the Hacienda La Puente School District, among others.

The job fair comes on the heels of state data out Friday reporting 11.4 percent unemployment in Los Angeles County.

Earlier this month, a Rancho Cucamonga job fair drew nearly 4,000 jobseekers, looking for work.
