Los Angeles - - A gathering of 29 employers were on hand for the Hollywood Spring Job Fair Wednesday, hosted by the office of Council President Eric Garcetti , the Youth Policy Institute (YPI), and Job Training. The event, held at Lemon Grove Park in Los Angeles, drew an estimated 500 job seekers.
Employers on hand included Goodwill Industries, Kaiser Permanente, the LAPD, and El Torito Restaurants. One employer noted, “This is an excellent group of candidates who will definitely meet our employment needs.”
In preparation for the event, YPI offered resume writing assistance and interview practice sessions.
The enthusiasm was evidenced when 1-on-1 Academic Tutors announced they are considering sponsoring an event in the San Fernando Valley later this year.
