Job Fair in Santa Rosa for California State Jobs

Senator McGuire hosts State of California Open House and Job Fair November 3

McGuire teams up with Operation Blanket to collect for the homeless 

State Senator Mike McGuire is excited to host the annual State of California Open House at the Rattigan State Building in Santa Rosa on Thursday, Nov. 3 from 5 to 7 p.m.

“We’re opening up the doors to the state building for family fun, delectable desserts and a fantastic job fair that will be a great experience for anyone who has thought about working for the state,” Senator McGuire said. “There will be over a dozen state and local agencies on hand focused on fun for the kids. They’ll be showcasing their services and programs along with great live music.”

Over a dozen state and local agencies will be on hand, including The California Highway Patrol and their kid activity team, representatives from State Parks will have great displays for the kids, CalFire will be in attendance with a fire truck, Smokey the Bear will be in the house and Covered California will answer questions and can sign folks up for affordable health benefits and we’ll have plenty of delicious desserts and refreshments.

There will also be an opportunity to learn about more than five dozen job openings the State of California currently has in Sonoma County. Senator McGuire and the California Department of Human Resources will be hosting a How to Get a State Job Workshop starting at 5:30 pm. There are State job openings for social workers, firefighters, office workers, electricians, custodians and more. The workshop kicks off at 5:30 pm at the State Building.

McGuire is also teaming up with Operation Blanket to collect new or gently worn blankets for the homeless. Senator McGuire is joining Ian Rich – who at age 9, with the support of his family, created an outreach program called Operation Blanket – dedicated to helping the homeless in Sonoma County and children and families in need.  Bring a blanket by for a neighbor in need and receive a gift for your generosity.
