Job fair helps woman find job

UNION GAP, Wash. -   Cindy Perez Tisher is a single mother of two and now that she is going back to school at Yakima Valley Community College, she needs to find a job to help pay for her tuition.    

"I'm going into the Chemical Dependency Program and this is my first quarter," Tisher said.

With her resume in hand, the first thing Tisher needs to do is make some changes and get some expert advice.

"I would change the font here if I were you," said an resume expert.

Now that Tisher has the materials she will need to make those important changes, she hopes this job fair will open up some doors.

"More information about what's out there, what's available, to get my name out there, and to let people see me to let everyone know," Tisher said.

The job fair is a great opportunity, not only for Tisher, but for other women in the community, she said.

"To let people, that are looking for jobs, to let them know what's available where they can go to different places that are hiring," she said.

Tisher is glad she stopped by the job fair because it's going to give her a firm grasp on what she needs to know, to get a job now, and once she graduates from YVCC.
