According to the airport, the Los Angeles International Airport and SoFi Stadium are holding a hiring fair this Thursday to fill more than 5,000 job positions – and some job seekers will be hired on the spot.
The job fair will take place Sept. 9 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Inglewood stadium, located at 1001 S. Stadium Drive. SoFi Stadium is also hosting additional hiring events this month, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday, on Sept. 14, 16, 21, 23, 28 and 30.
According to a news release from the airport, more than 45 organizations based at LAX and the stadium will be looking to employ on Thursday, with jobs available in airlines, concessions, retail, administration, construction, security, food services and hospitality.
According to organizers, interviews will be done at the event on Thursday. Everyone who pre-registers will have access to online training jobs and resources such as résumé and interview tips.
At the job fair, representatives from the state Employment Development Department and the city of Los Angeles’ WorkSource Centers will also be present.
LAX is the world’s third busiest airport and the second busiest in the United States. According to the airport, it supports more than 620,000 employment in Southern California, according to a research-based on 2014 activities.
Meanwhile, SoFi Stadium claims it is committed to being a 100 percent union employment site and has set aside apprenticeship programs to enable locals of Inglewood to obtain expertise.
“Behind the scenes of every concert, sporting event and vacation is an individual whose role contributes to the creation of memorable experiences,” said Crolyn Hull, general manager for the city of L.A.’s Economic and Workforce Development Department. “This job fair represents an opportunity to restore lost jobs and illuminate options for job training that can lead to new careers.”
Officials say COVID-19 safety guidelines will be in place at Thursday’s event, including mandatory masking and physical distancing. More than 1,500 people were registered for the event as of Saturday.
