Fair attracts job seekers, providers
Clark College hosts ‘Career Days’ event for community

Rob Boley, of Washougal, is adjusting to his new job — which is to find a job.
For seven years, he owned The Great Frame Up, in the Riverstone Marketplace development along Southeast 192nd Avenue, in Vancouver. After deciding not to renew his lease, Boley closed the custom art framing shop in February.
He was among the more than 800 individuals participating in a job fair at Clark College, Wednesday.
"It was time well spent for me," Boley said. "I learned a lot about many companies in a short period of time, and I was able to stop and visit with just about every table there.
"The ones that resonate the most with me were the businesses in the retail front or selling products that I could become personally excited about," he added.
