*****WEEK of October 14th*****(start time could be slightly delayed)
PG&E San Bruno Area Work Update:
PG&E in a letter dated October 8th 2013 provides the following pre notice information.
This is a letter to notify residents that PG&E and its contractors will be working on one of their electric transmission towers. PG&E’s construction schedule is dependent on safe field conditions expected to occur on or around October 14th.
In order to provide more clearance between the transmission wires and the ground, crews will be working within the utility easement on San Francisco International Airport property located east of 7th Avenue in San Bruno and west of the 101 freeway to extend the height of a PG&E electric transmission tower.
During the project, anticipate the following:
-Crews will utilize a crane to lift and install an extension piece to the mid-section of the existing transmission tower.
-In order to access the tower, the crane will utilize the access gate on 7th Avenue between San Bruno Avenue and Pine Street.
-Should it be necessary for safe access, PG&E will post “No Parking” signs at least 72 hours in advance of the project start and traffic control will be present on site.
-The extension work takes about one day to complete, although crews will conduct preliminary site activities and vegetation maintenance to ready access and prepare the tower in advance.
-While crews add an extension piece to the tower, the lines will be de-energized; however your electrical service should not be interrupted during construction.
If you have any questions about this work, please contact your local Customer Outreach Specialist, Tim Kingsbury, at 415-973-8396 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Dear Job Seekers,
Mark your calendars! My next Job Hunters Boot Camp (JHBC) is scheduled for October 16, 2013, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, at the San Mateo Event Center, Fiesta Hall. If you are looking for work and inspiration in your job search, I encourage you to attend this free event.
This will be the 10th boot camp since I started holding these events in 2010. Job Hunters Boot Camp is not your typical job fair.

We will have workshops teaching you how to ace your interview, how to avoid the ten most common mistakes in your job search, how to advance your career, how to effectively use LinkedIn, and more. You will be able to review your resume and practice your interviewing skills with experts.
Our goal is to boost your morale and help you find employment. You are not alone! Over 5,000 job seekers have taken advantage of past boot camps and many have landed full time jobs. At the last event, for example, Lindsay Schulz shared how JHBC helped her:
We will have
dozens of employers – the list is still growing – who are looking for candidates.
