BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – The unemployment rate in Kern County is greater than 10 percent. Delano's unemployment rate is 11.9%.

But, the Kern County Department of Human Services hopes to change that by bringing the JobFest series to Cesar Chavez High School at 800 Browning Road on Thursday, June 15th, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Job seekers are encouraged to attend the JobFest dressed for success with at least 20 copies of their resume or Master Application.

Event admission and parking are free. A variety of employers will be available to attend to job seekers, and potentially offer employment on-the-spot. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Job leads and resume assistance are available every day to the public at all DHS locations.
