CUYAMACA COLLEGE — Local jobs are available no matter what bad news you have heard about the economy.

That was evident on Friday, August 26, at a job fair held  at the Student Learning Center here.

Among a room full of potential employers were a variety of private companies and public agencies including the Border Patrol, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, H & R Block, KFMB Television,  Pre-Paid Legal Services, and Sea World

Some exhibitors tried harder than others to attract attendees to their tables.  For example, H&R Block recruiters were all dressed in green, the table-cloth was green, and so were two table lamps.   Sea World relied on big signs featuring a jumping Shamu, and lured potential applicants with candy and small toys.  Border Patrol had two physically fit–okay, “macho” — agents serving as recruiters.

Students who were unable to attend the fair need not overly concern themselves.  Most of the exhibitors directed potential applicants to their websites to learn more.
