Many of you have been asking us at The Job Forum “What can I do to help out?”

You can actually do a lot. You can become a donor to The Job Forum, a nearly 70- year-old, 501(c)(3) non-profit with an impressive track record of helping job hunters.

  • Restarting our economy, helping people find employment is more important, and more difficult than ever, as the Bay Area starts to recover from the economic devastation of COVID-19.
  • We welcome you to partner with The Job Forum to give job hunters the tools for success. You will be helping to rebuild our business community.
  • Young adults, just starting out to work and contribute here in the San Francisco Bay Area, are having real trouble finding the job for them.
  • Many job hunters just 45 years old are experiencing ageism and outright discrimination in hiring.
  • People need to work to support their families and themselves for 10 - 15 - 20 or more working years, and need extra input now in order to succeed in a job search.
  • Many job hunters are very discouraged and lack the knowledge to conduct a job search using the right tactics for today’s environment.
  • There are many who have so much to offer SF Bay Area businesses, are willing to be flexible, and they simply need advice and coaching for how to optimize their job search process if they are to succeed.

HELP Us to help job hunters now and rebuild the SF Bay Area economy. Thank you.

We want to help. You can help us reach those looking for a job and encourage them to come to the Job Forum – VIRTUALLY.

The Job Forum offers virtual meetings to advise job hunters every Wednesday evening. Special workshops for job hunters and business people trying to grow revenues are on most Thursday evenings.
