Mendocino College to Host Veterans Resource Fair and Career Hub Grand Opening, Nov 13

November 4, 2019

Mendocino College’s 2019 Veterans Day Event will feature a Resource Fair, Grand Opening of the new Career Hub, and Grand Re-Opening of the Veterans Resource Center.

The event is open to all and will be held Wednesday, November 13, from 11:30am-2:30pm. The focus of the event will be overall wellness: physical, emotional, financial, and social. There will be a wide variety of community partners present in support of overall wellness, veteran services, and career opportunities.

The day will include a Veterans Day ceremony, student Veteran panel, a free lunch prepared by the Mendocino College Culinary Arts Department, a resource fair, and a chance to win prizes for those who attend and actively participate. The events will all be held at the Ukiah campus, starting with the ceremony and student Veteran panel in the Little Theatre, followed by the resource fair and lunch in the Lowery Student Center, Career Hub in room 1250, and Veterans Resource Center in room 1240.

The goal of the new Mendocino College Career Hub is to help students and community members learn how to choose a career that aligns with their individual interests. Visitors have access to computers, get advice about how to create a resume or dress for interviews, and practice for upcoming job interviews through mock interviews. The Career Hub also connects community businesses to job seekers in the area by hosting presentations by local employers and posting current employment opportunities.

The Veterans Resource Center offers a space for veterans to connect with other veterans over a cup of coffee, conduct small study groups, access computers for completion of homework, receive information about educational benefits to which they may be entitled, and assistance in applying for educational benefits.  

The Ukiah campus of Mendocino College is located at 1000 Hensley Creek Road, Ukiah, CA 95482.  For information about this event, contact Lauren Simmonds, Career Center Specialist: lsimmonds@mendocino.edu or 707-468-3044.
