If you're seeking employment, and you're not already on LinkedIn, www.linkedin.com , I suggest you create a profile right away. I just checked in and there were nearly a dozen jobs posted within my groups/connections, and many were in the Torrance/Santa Monica/Los Angeles area.
At the least, you can follow groups, find out what employment/staffing companies are available, and job/skill trends.

Residents - I know most of you know this, but some of our friends and relatives need to be reminded! There is a slow return of door to door magazine sales and contractors pitching their "wares".
I just spoke with a neighbor Jo who had lengthy conversations with both. A young girl, (once again saying what they all do, that she lives "up the street") just sold another neighbor Em, a bogus magazine subscription that "goes to a veteran". By the time the other neighbor Jo tipped her off,…Continue

Over the years I have found that San Pedro has many places that are very eye catching and pleasing. These are really good places for people to get pumped and do a nice workout. Places like the area between Point Fermin and the White Point Nature Preserve offer so much inspiration for a beginning jogger like myself. It's a good length strip next to the street with a view to the ocean, surrounding trees and grass. This is a good place for a beginner to challenge themselves to make it from one…Continue

Some of our new vendor friends at Crafted were wondering what things there are to do in San Pedro, specifically for guys! I think it's good timing with all of the visitors & Naval vets here this month. My list & updates.
Things For Guys To See or Do In San Pedro
It was my pleasure, representing the City of Los Angeles, to participate in the many amazing Fourth of July events in San Pedro. From the 26th annual flag raising at the Villa family home on 18th St. in San Pedro to the annual Korean Friendship Bell ringing to the commissioning of the Iowa and lastly the fireworks at Cabrillo Beach it was an epic day for me personally. For the past six years on the fourth, I worked the streets as an LAPD officer keeping the community safe from illegal…Continue
