Aguilar Hosts Third Jobs Fair for Inland Empire Residents

San Bernardino, CA— On Friday, Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-San Bernardino) held an Inland Empire Jobs Fair at the San Bernardino Boys & Girls Club, hosting over 300 hundred San Bernardino County residents looking for work and connecting them with 58 local employers and job training opportunities. This is the third jobs fair Rep. Aguilar has hosted since taking office in 2015.

“To get our economy back on track and put Inland Empire residents back to work, we need local assistance as much as we need policy solutions. It’s important that we utilize available community resources to directly connect job seekers with skills training and local employers looking to hire,” said Rep. Aguilar. He added, “As our region continues to recover from the Great Recession, I’ll use every tool necessary to make sure our community members have the help they need to provide for their families.”

Christina Avalos, Human Resources Recruiter for States Logistics Services, Inc., commented on the event, “Not only was it well attended, but the applicants we saw were of great quality, great caliber, and had such an eagerness to work.” She continued, “Because of this event, we were able to add six more people to our needs, which cut our need down by one-third, so we are very grateful.”

“I think that the congressman is doing a really good job bringing this many vendors out to a jobs fair,” said Colton resident Stephen Hyman. He continued, “I’d like to thank Congressman Aguilar for organizing this event.”

Rep. Aguilar has prioritized legislation to create good-paying jobs, support local businesses and invest in workforce skills training. During his first term in office, he introduced five bills to help kick-start the Inland Empire economy. Last month, he reintroduced the On-the-Job Training Tax Credit Act, a bill to help local employers expand their workforce and pay for training of new hires. Rep. Aguilar has helped over 100 residents find employment with the two previous jobs fairs he hosted in 2015 and 2016.

CSUSB’s online criminal justice master’s program makes two national ranking lists

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The online criminal justice program at Cal State San Bernardino has been named to two national ranking lists for 2017.

TheBestSchools.org placed the CSUSB criminal justice online master’s degree program at No. 15 in its ranking, “The 25 Best Online Master of Criminal Justice Degree Programs.”

“We selected the programs based on the quality of the program, the types of courses offered, the faculty, rankings, awards, and reputation, including the school’s reputation for effectively providing online degree programs,” the online ranking service said.

CSUSB was the only California State University and the only California university listed in the top 25. The University of Cincinnati was ranked in the top spot.

And College Choice, a leading authority in college search and rankings, listed CSUSB at No. 35 in its list of “35 Best Online Master’s in Criminal Justice Degrees, 2017.” UC Irvine (No. 5) and La Jolla-based National University (No. 34) were the only other California schools named with CSUSB. Michigan State was ranked No. 1 on this list.

“Our rankings are based (on) data that students have indicated is most important to them: cost and reputation,” College Choice said on its website. “Our data is drawn from a number of public sources, including U.S. News & World Report, the National Center for Education Statistics, and PayScale.”

The criminal justice department has had both its undergraduate and graduate degree programs named to national rankings in the past.

In the summer of 2016, the online bachelor’s program was ranked No. 2 by the Center for Online Education in its “Best Online Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice Degree Programs” list, and No. 7 by the Best Degree Program in its “Top 30 Best Online Criminal Justice Degree Programs (Bachelor’s) 2016.”

In May 2016, College Choice listed the online criminal justice master’s degree program No. 12 in the United States, and the only CSU campus to make its “Best Online Masters in Criminal Justice Degree Programs, 2016” list.

Visit the CSUSB Department of Criminal Justice website for more information on its programs.
