Starbucks, Taco Bell and Papa John’s are among restaurant chains joining forces for a massive hiring fair called 100,000 Opportunities on Thursday at the Los Angeles Convention Center. It targets “opportunity youths,” or young people who are neither working nor in school, according to Nation’s Restaurant News.
Services like LinkedIn will help attendees set up social media profiles, for example, and department store Nordstrom will offer advice on dressing for job interviews. Community groups and social service organizations will also be on hand, along with city and county officials, including Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti.
The event is the third such initiative launched by Starbucks last year, with an assist from a dozen other employers, with the goal of hiring 100,000 young people nationwide by 2018. More than 4,000 people are expected to attend the day-long event.
