Cuesta College to host talk on applying for jobs

Cuesta College’s Black Student Union club will host a lecture Monday afternoon to discuss ways that students can be more prepared when applying for jobs.

An hourlong talk, “The Power of Presentation” will be given by Belinda Bass, a human resources specialist with Scientific Drilling International, which has an office in Paso Robles. She has also worked for Tribune Media, Time Warner, Paramount Pictures, Mercury Insurance and JPMorgan Chase & Co., according to a news release from Cuesta College.

The event, which is open to the public, will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. Monday, March 16, on Cuesta College’s Paso Robles campus, Room N3213. A live feed will be available on the San Luis Obispo campus in Room 3219.

The Black Student Union club works to empower Cuesta College’s African-American students by educating all students about the success and history of African-Americans, the release stated.

“Having a female, African-American guest speaker who is accomplished in the business world will be empowering for female and African-American students and community members,” said Gary Rubin, Cuesta College business instructor and BSU faculty adviser.
