Guam - An Employment Expo took place today at The Phoenix Center in Mangilao. The event provided job seekers and employers the opportunity to interview one another to match skills and ability with job openings.

Guam Contractors Association president James Martinez told KUAM News, "What we're trying to do with our vendors and our employers today is we're trying to give them a one-stop shop where they can invite a lot of residents who are actively looking for work. Those who are employed and unemployed. We're also targeting people with disabilities, women in non traditional positions for some of these jobs that are available. And we're also offering this as a venue for those federal contractors who are trying to meeting the requirement to recruit in good fair effort for U.S. workers".

An employability workshop was held a couple of days ago to allow individuals in the community to hone their interview skills and give them information on how to create the best possible resume. The GCA, the Guam Community College, the Guam Chamber of Commerce, and the Department of Labor put the two events together.
