Federal government

• U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, will sponsor her 10th Job Hunters Boot Camp in conjunction with Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-South San Francisco, and the San Mateo County Workforce Investment Board tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the San Mateo County Event Center.

A record number of employers and job seekers have registered for the event which is a combination of a job fair and workshops. More than 60 employers are hiring including banks, credit unions, hotels, security and transportation companies and retailers. More than 1,100 job seekers have signed up.

Workshops will include Choosing the Greater Good with KCBS anchor Jeff Bell, “Ten Common Mistakes made by Job Seekers” with recruiter Donna Fedor, “How to Ace your interview” with career consultant Rebecca Kieler, and “How to Get a Job Using your Smartphone” with Pablo Fuentes.

“The outpouring of interest from both employers and job seekers shows that the economy is recovering and companies are hiring,” Speier said.

Job Hunters Boot camp will take place even if the federal government shutdown is in effect.
