10:00 AM - 02:00 PM Community Job Fair Organized by Columbia College and Mother Lode Job Training
Columbia, CA...Columbia College will hold a Community Job Fair that is cosponsored with Mother Lode Job Training. The event will host 66 employers and will take place on Friday, April 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the Columbia College campus in the Oak Pavilion. Job seekers are encouraged to bring their résumé, dress for success, and be ready to discuss their experience and skills with prospective employers at the event.

The event is organized through a partnership with Mother Lode Job Training. Mary Watts, Columbia College Career & Transfer Center Program Technician, shared that area employers are looking for job applicants in many fields including public utilities, forestry, healthcare, education, hospitality management, fire, and administrative support. Employers are looking to hire full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions. “I encourage job seekers to attend to find out about the wonderful opportunities available in our community, network with employers, and practice their “elevator pitch” to employers.”

The event is by far the largest job fair in Calaveras and Tuolumne counties serving local area residents with many small, medium, and large employers attending from throughout the region, including:

Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Tuolumne Utilities District
U.S. Forest Service
Sierra Pacific Industries
California State Parks
Condor Earth Technologies
Adventist Health Sonora
Calaveras Winegrape Alliance
Calaveras County Water District
…and; county, state, and federal government representatives.

The purpose of the event is to connect job seekers at the college, or those in the community, with employers to learn more about the different positions available, make valuable connections, and potentially find employment. Columbia College student Kathy Marquez secured an internship with the U.S. Forest Service after attending the 2018 job fair and said it “will look good on my resume and hopefully be a foot in the door.”

The event will feature eight information session panels on careers in hospitality management, natural resources, law enforcement, health, fire, education, the arts, and the military. The panels will feature industry experts providing valuable information on their profession and how to get a job in that field.

Parking will be relaxed on April 5th, so that attendees will not need to purchase a parking permit the day of the event. Columbia College and Mother Lode Job Training are equal opportunity employers. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request at the event for individuals with disabilities. For more information contact, Mary Watts, Columbia College Career & Transfer Center Program Technician at (209) 588-5273,, visit or
