The Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership (The Partnership) Hospitality and Tourism Sector Center, and the Westside American Job Center, operated by KRA, are hosting a First Interview Event on March 1, 2023.
The event is being convened on behalf of multiple employer-partners, e.g. Aramark Uniform Services, Bon Appetit Creperie, KRA, Marriott Marquis, Omni Hotel, Park Hyatt, Pyramid Partnership, Quest Foods, Rush Medical College, SMASHotels, and Sugar Rimz.
Employers will be interviewing on-site for Accounting, Food & Beverage, Front Office, and General Management; Food Preparation and Service; Sales; and Security positions, ranging from $17-$24 for hourly positions, and up to $72,000 for management opportunities! This round of “first interviews” holds the potential for on-the-spot offers or second interviews.
Mignonne Barnes, KRA Program Director, who offered to collaborate with the Partnership on this unique initiative, commented, “We are excited to provide residents of the Westside communities and Chicagoland area with opportunities for life-changing career paths with these world-class employers.
“KRA is actively advertising the event through our Career- and Business-Services staff, who are screening and pre-qualifying registered customers, as well as all our community agency-partners. Therefore, we anticipate a robust turnout of jobseekers, from which we know the employers will find many qualified candidates.”
