Resource and Mock Job Fair

November 20, 2019

Greetings Partners,

The Bureau of Prisons, Federal Detention Center in SeaTac, is hosting our annual Resource and Mock Job Fair on November 20 @ 7:30 am-1:30 pm

 

The mission of this event is to promote a positive and proactive re-integration through collaboration with community partners.  It provides our population the opportunity to meet with various organizations and agencies that offer support services to justice involved individuals.

 

Participants are asked to bring information and resources pertaining to employment and apprenticeships, housing, child and family services, child support, social services, mental health services, health and medical services, licensing requirements, legal services, post-secondary education, etc. This year, we will be reintroducing a session of mock job interviews as well. Our goal is to encourage our clients to practice their interviewing skills and gain feedback that will be beneficial for them in their journey to employment.  

 

We are proud to partner with many local, federal, state and community organizations and hope to expand our network even further. We know many of you through your work with CPTS Community Partnership for Transition Solutions and resource fairs and reentry forums throughout our state.  If you know of a contact and/or agency that can help support our mission and the population we serve, please kindly forward me their contact information.

 

If you are interested in participating in our Resource Fair, please RSVP via email to Vera Caldwell (Taguchi) at vcaldwell@bop.gov by October 25, 2019. As space is limited in our facility, we are requesting a maximum of 2 representatives per agency/program.

 

As we are a federal institution, please keep in mind that a background clearance is required for entrance. I will send out detailed information and NCIC clearance forms upon receipt of your reservation.
