LIVERMORE -- The Paragon Outlets' Nov. 8 opening in Livermore is expected to bring 2,000 jobs to the Tri-Valley and in preparation for the new hires Livermore and Alameda County have partnered to host a series of workshops.

The city and the Alameda County Workforce Investment Board will offer workshops on interview techniques, customer service, resume writing and how to fill job applications from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Livermore main library, 1188 S. Livermore Ave. in Livermore.

The workshops are free, but the city is asking that participants preregister for the workshops by calling Theresa De La Vega, the city economic development specialist, at 925-960-4049 or via email at tbdelavega@cityoflivermore.net.

Paragon Outlets is expected to host a job fair in early fall in Livermore, said De La Vega. An exact date of the fair is expected to be announced later this summer.

The 543,000-square-foot shopping center will be anchored by a Bloomingdale's outlet, which will take up nearly 25,000 square feet of the mall near eastbound Interstate 580 and El Charro Road.

Other designer outlets scheduled to call the center home include Barney's New York, Brooks Brothers Factory Store, Neiman Marcus Last Call, Banana Republic Factory Store, J. Crew and Nike Factory Store.

The $162 million center broke ground in August and should boost Livermore's sales tax revenue by $2 million, according to earlier published reports.
