The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will hold a Veterans Summer Slam Employment Fair on Friday, June 29 for military veterans but all job seekers are welcome to participate.
Forty private and public employers will be recruiting and hiring during the job fair. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, June 29 in the Ticketing Concourse at Union Station, 800 N. Alameda Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
Metro staff will be available to explain the kind of positions and benefits that the agency offers as well other federal, state and local agencies plus private companies.
Metro recommends all applicants wear business-type clothing, bring copies of updated resumes and be ready to provide all of their information during job interviews. The whole process may take a couple of hours.
Metro is in the midst of the nation’s largest public infrastructure expansion, thanks to the Measure M sales tax ballot measure approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2016. Measure M is expected to support and generate more than 465,000 jobs in the L.A. metro area. Metro already faces the challenge of filling positions in management, maintenance and operations.
