The Workforce Development Center, Rancho Mirage Chamber, Business Recovery Alliance and more are partnering by hosting a Virtual Veteran Job Fair on February 23rd.
We are currently marketing to the business and job seeker communities.
The Workforce Development Center has many business services to include the business incentive program, On-the Job (OJT) Training. If you have a candidate in mind, but they require some training the OJT program can assist by reimbursing half their wages for the first 480 hours. If you would like to learn more about this program please contact Manuel Rocha at (760)863-2503. We currently have Veteran specific funding that can be used for OJT contracts. We also have funding for non-Veterans. WIOA eligibility is required prior to start date.
