The Los Angeles Urban League, in partnership with JPMorgan, Cedar Sinai, Honda, Target and other employers, will host a Youth and College Career Fair on Friday, May 5, at the Beehive, located at 1000 60th Street in Los Angeles.
The job fair, which targets college-aged and high school age students across Los Angeles, begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m. The event is occurring in the month of May to honor “Youth Hiring Month.”
Career fair attendees will have the opportunity to meet with top companies, learn about internship opportunities, and network with industry professionals, in a festive environment. Over 50 companies will be in attendance representing hundreds of opportunities that the over 600 registered career fair attendees will have a chance to explore. The Career Fair will provide a wide range of career paths and possible employment opportunities for those in attendance, as well as the possibility of attendees being hired on the spot.
By 2024, more than 50% of non-military job positions will demand that candidates possess previous work experience. This means that young people from disadvantaged backgrounds need access to resources that can equip them with the necessary foundational skills and work experience to secure employment, become self-sufficient, and accomplish their desired career objectives.
The Los Angele Urban League’s 3rd Annual Career Fair is bringing the services, resources, and opportunities like free Professional Headshots, Resume Workshops, and Interview Practice Sessions,
“The Los Angeles Urban League, with support from sponsors and partners like Honda, Target, and JP Morgan Chase, I feel strongly that this career fair will assist Los Angeles youth in finding their passions. Eighty percent Gen Z will have jobs that don’t even exist right now,” said Jamecca Marshall, LAUL vice president of Programs. “More than just jobs for ‘right now’ – this Career Fair is the future of LA.”
