Talking about JOBS! Kristi Trione and Ryan Lewis joined us today from the SV Community Network to talk about a Jobs Fair coming to Fall City on November 5th. This is a great story of how the community is coming together to help people who are out of work get the support they need. Please consider helping out, or join us! We’ll have employers there, so bring your resume.

We also had a POWERFUL conversation with Tim Anderson at Ground ZERO of Occupy Seattle. At the 30 minute mark, Tim joined us and we were all BUZZING with excitement. Listen in to this POWERFUL SHOW!!
The NEW LIVELIHOODS JOB FAIR (NLJF) is a FREE, first of its kind, public event aimed at bringing Snoqualmie Valley community residents together to help develop our local economy.
The NLJF is envisioned to be a platform to link those in immediate need of finding a job with local employers. Job finding helper services (i.e. resume and interview coaching) as well as social services for the financially struggling will be on site. Free workshops and exhibitor booths designed to help foster new, self-starter income earning possibilities will be offered across the day. In efforts to tap the wisdom of enrolled groups, an innovative workshop facilitation method known as “Open Space” will be hosted to identify and prepare potential next steps about creating new forms of work, new businesses — new livelihoods in our valley!
Who Should Attend
Valley residents of all ages who are unemployed, underemployed and/or unhappily employed and looking for meaningful work.
Businesses wanting to promote their products and services, network and collaborate with others, find employees or interns, or share their skills.
Entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and idea people looking to develop or promote local co-operatives, partnerships or business ventures.
Keynote Speaker – David Korten David Korten (author of Agenda for a New Economy and cofounder, board chair of YES! Magazine) was asked to speak at this event because his vision for a new economy is the kind of thinking that considers how to respond to the economic challenges we face and how to create a tomorrow where our grandchildren and their grandchildren will thrive. His message is timely and important. (Visit to learn more about David’s work.) Food Free continental breakfast.
