At this point we should just nominate Jay-Z for president!
Rolling out announced the news, that Roc Nation and Reform Alliance groups will host the “Team Roc” New York Job Fair at Madison Square Garden on November 18. The event hopes to revitalize NY’s workforce with thousands of positions of all levels available.
The companies that will be at this event are Zara, Lowe’s, Madison Square Garden, Amazon, Foot Locker, Live Nation, Vice, Hov’s 40/40 Club, and many more. Also, anyone in attendance can seek advice on resume building, professional attire, and receive styling and grooming services..
Reform Alliance is a group founded by Jay-Z and Meek Mill in 2018, says The Blast. The idea was to form an organization to help with criminal justice reform.
The objective for the job fair is to help various people who may not have the resources to thrive. For example, a single mom, who is having a hard time to find a good paying gig and anyone who was recently incarcerated.
The CEO of Roc Nation, Desire Perez, made a statement with Complex about the job fair saying, “I’d like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the companies that are participating in the job fair, as well as Madison Square Garden for hosting and supporting our efforts. My hope is this event will not only stimulate New York’s economy but pair the state’s best and brightest employees with the country’s leading organizations.”
To participate at the job fair, employers must be willing to commit to offering full-time positions that are primarily based in the state of New York. Prospective candidates must be able to show proof of at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, along with an appropriate ID matching the name on their documentation, to enter the venue.
YASSSSSSS to Jay-Z and to Roc Nation for coming together to give the residents of NYC an opportunity to chase a bag!
