The City of San Diego is serving as a bridge to connect job seekers with employers in the fields of child care and early education. Over the next week, the City’s Office of Child and Youth Success, in partnership with the Parks and Recreation Department, will host three job fairs for people interested in a career in child care and early education. Job seekers will have the opportunity to learn about current openings at all levels, discover qualifications and access resources for job preparation, training and career pathways.
