The San Diego Career Centers (SDCC)—operated by KRA for the San Diego Workforce Partnership (SDWP)—launched Searching in San Diego, the official SDWP Podcast for on-demand access to up-to-date “workforce topics, trends, and tips” for both jobseekers and employers in March 2016.
To date, 108 episodes have been co-hosted by Diana Saldivar, KRA Career Centers Brand Manager and Doug Foresta, Workforce180 Director of Podcast Services and Communications, and supported by KRA/SDWP Career- and Business-Services specialists, who contribute their expertise.
For example, in E108: The Tables Have Turned, Maxine Suka, KRA Director of Workforce Operations, discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic has caused the “tables to turn” when it comes to the employer/employee relationship.
