University of California, San Diego
December 2, 1999
SUBJECT: Welfare to Work Presentation
I am pleased to announce UCSD's participation in the Welfare to Work Program. This program is a collaboration between the San Diego Workforce Partnership, the U.S. Department of Labor, the state's Employment Training Panel and local service providers to train and place job-ready clients in entry-level positions. With the San Diego area experiencing an unemployment rate below 3% and increased competition from local employers, the Welfare to Work program provides UCSD with an untapped resource for entry-level employees. In addition, the program provides financial incentives to employers who hire program participants.
To find out more about how this program can help you meet your employment needs, please join us on:
Thursday, December 9, 1999
Presentations will be made by Larry Fitch, CEO and his staff from the San Diego Workforce Partnership, as to the preparation and training participants receive before being eligible for placement and the benefits that may be received by hiring departments. A hiring supervisor and a program participant from the San Diego area will discuss their experiences with the program. Representatives from campus Human Resources will cover the details of how departments can participate in this program.
