2017 Hiring Affair Photo Wrap Up

06/01/2017 | Share this:

As always the Success Center SF Summer Hiring Affair was a great opportunity for job seekers to connect with employers looking for new talent. Our hiring event, one of the few held out doors (perhaps only) in the city was a smashing success with warm temperatures and over 200 candidates and over 51 major Bay area employers in attendance.

Here are a few shots from the event. Thanks to everyone who participated.

Want to know who’s hiring? Come to the Career Center at 1449 Webster and attend our orientation Mon – Thursday at 10am. Also see our official Hiring Affair Employer List below .
