Roc Nation, the entertainment company owned by rapper Jay-Z, has announced its decision to organize a job fair at Madison Square Garden in collaboration with REFORM Allianc.
The initiative will take place on November 18. It will run between 9 AM and 5 PM (eastern time). It aims to assist single parents and former prisoners with finding jobs in New York City. The Roc Nation announced the initiative Wednesday.
“The Team Roc New York Job Fair is a real opportunity for socio-economic mobility for New Yorkers — those who want to work, yet have not had the exposure or connections to the right-fit jobs, or to the support services that can strengthen their prospects for employment.”
In addition to on-site interviews, attendees will be offered work opportunities as well as career-development services. Interview panel will consist of representatives from Foot Locker, Zara, Lowe’s, Madison Square Garden, Amazon, Vice, 40/40 Club, and Live Nation.
Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez said the job fair is aimed at stimulating the state’s economy in addition to connecting best possible candidates with top companies in the United States.
