A business and career expo brought together over a thousand job-seekers, local employers and educators at the Citrus Heights Community Center, yesterday, in an effort to create jobs, promote local business and encourage education.

“It was great to see people of all walks of life here,” said event organizer Olga Ivannikov, highlighting the diverse attendees at the 5th annual Multicultural Business and Career Expo.

The all-day event provided an opportunity for attendees to meet local employers, learn about open positions, and get familiar with the job application process.

Gabe Stein, 19, who attended the event, said “it was filled with great opportunities” for those seeking employment, as well as for business owners.

Although hoping for a bit more attendees, the Citrus Heights Police Department was able to recruit “four strong applicants” for entry-level job positions at its table, according to Community Service Office Larissa Wasilevsky.

The event was organized by Russian-American Media, and gained the support of the Citrus Heights Chamber of Commerce and former Senator George Runner.

Organizers said Citrus Heights was chosen to host the event due to its friendly business climate, saying the City is “extremely proactive in helping small business owners.”
