UPDATE on Seminar #2

May 31, 2013

I just wanted to share with all of you that Seminar #2 on Employment was another success. We had about 70 people, some were on the sidelines, standing for the full hour. We had five great speakers offering employment opportunities, giving advise on how to find a job asap, and sharing the many resources that are out there to help those looking for a job.
We had Crystal Lynn with “Women Helping Women/ Men 2 Work” who was the only non-profit organization present that specializes in helping people find a job -with a spectrum of workshops and they even help dress the person from head to toe so that they can feel more confident about themselves and facilitate their path to employment. We had Lori Coelho, the District Manager for H&R Block, and Karina Martinez, the H&R Block Community Ambassador also present, speaking about the many career opportunities with the national income tax corporation, they also mentioned the H&R Block tax courses and the fact that they offer financial assistance to those who qualify. We also had Melissa Vasquez with Diverse Staffing Solutions, a national employment agency owned by a local and prominent Latino, Fred Flores, with a self-made story to inspire. We had Robert Hammond who as a Marine Veteran offered an alternative to finding a job by enrolling in the Marines, Navy, or Army. He mentioned the priceless opportunities Latinos who are fluently bilingual have in the national services, with more possibilities of promotion and higher pay..and also gave advise to the parents and students present, about making sure they graduate with a high school Diploma rather than a GED because come September of 2013, they will not allow GED graduates to join, and will make it impossible to ever become a Sargent for those with a FICO score below 650. Finally, we had Mike Dalati inform the audience that as an Enrolled Agent and Santa Ana School Board District candidate 2014, he has personally been teaching tax prep classes for the last three years and they are given here at the office on 726 S. Main St. The audience had an informative time, lots of Q&A… Thank you all who were there to support us…. including Arturo Garcia -Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff’s District Rep, Christine Bronstein and Dr. Ron Smith representing the Lincoln Club, John Warner and Bill Dunlap representing the OCGOP, and also Manny Padilla with the Lincoln Club who also came by to join us!
At the end, all of our speakers continued to be very interested in working with us again, so through our Latino Outreach Seminars, we’re becoming a bridge between the resources out there and our community. People are getting the drift that our seminars are biweekly, valuable, and at the same time, same location -and we have pizza and drinks…  This is only the beginning, and God willing, we continue to growing.
