Nightmare on Gibson Event at Woodland Community College

Nightmare on Gibson

Yesterday was the long awaited Halloween Party, Nightmare on Gibson, at Woodland Community College! Many people dressed up to show their spooky sides and true Eagles spirit. People dressed up as many things including cats, gumball machines, sandwiches and even death itself! Free refreshments had been provided as well which kept the crowd that had gathered there content. There was a photo booth where you could take pictures in your stunning costumes and many pictures that were taken showed up on the schools Instagram page, including the group picture taken after the costume contest.

The costume contest was the main event of the afternoon where every person in costume came up to show off their amazing outfits of the day. Everyone who participated gave it their all, strutting to the stage and giving their best character pose, with some prompting from the audience. The audience went wild when the participants posed, twirled, and strummed on their guitars, giving the audience a good sense that the people in costume truly embodied their characters. However, at the end of the contest, there could only be three winners. To no one’s surprise, the winners were Paulina dressed as a mime in third, Carrie dressed as a gumball machine in second, and Emiliano dressed as Miguel from Coco taking first place! The prizes were gift cards and, of course, lots and lots of candy.

On September 17th from 12-1 PM, representatives Courtney King and Chelsea Hainline gave a presentation to inform students on how to get a state job. Their presentation covered what careers are available in state jobs and their education requirements, and they provided a step-by-step guide on creating a CalCareers Account. The room was full and vibrant with WCC students from many different backgrounds and ethnicities. 

King and Hainline discussed various careers in the powerpoint presentation ranging from Accountant to Lottery Manager and Associate Architect. The handout King and Hainline provided to all students who attended the workshop had a plethora of additional career options in the state government. However, students can check out more career choices at CalCareers.ca.gov.  

According to King and Hainline, state jobs require specific education based on the position the applicant is looking into applying for. For example, a seasonal clerk and janitorial positions require a high school diploma to be able to be accepted in those jobs; while higher level jobs like Accounting Analyst and Air Resources Engineer require a four year bachelor Degree. Many students seemed surprised: to learn that even high school graduates can get into a state job. 

One of the handouts King and Hainline provided detailed the process of creating a CalCareers Account. First, students will need to create a CalCareers Account at jobs.ca.gov that the “Steps to Creating CalCareers Account” pamphlet shows. The next step would be to search for positions that interest you. King and Hainline advise applicants to read the qualifications and exam bulletins to determine if they are eligible. After this, the exam must be taken at jobs.ca.gov for the vacancy the applicant is interested in. The last step is to apply online through CalCareers or through the mail. 

King and Hainline mentioned that the standard State Application form is ALWAYS required and some agencies can request for documents such as a cover letter or resume. 

 For any questions, applicants can contact Recuritment@dgs.ca.gov or visit openings at www.dgs.ca.gov/OHR/Careers. Happy Job Hunting everyone!
