The community is invited to learn about culinary apprenticeship training and job placement assistance in the hospitality industry
PVJOBS is set to host a special community information session to discuss the organization’s culinary apprenticeship program and hospitality industry placement services.
The briefing will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, April 29 at the PVJOBS headquarters located at 4112 S. Main Street in South Los Angeles. The event is free and open to residents of the community, especially those interested in pursuing a culinary career.
The information event is organized to inform individuals about the eight-week culinary apprenticeship program offered by PVJOBS. PVJOBS staff will also discuss their services in providing job placement assistance to those completing the Culinary Apprenticeship Program.
“We invite our community to this informational event to introduce them to the culinary field and educate them on how they can pursue a sustainable career in the hospitality industry,” said Mary Taylor, Executive Director of PVJOBS. “Through this event, we will share how we have created a pathway for our residents to get the training they need to help them get into career-leading culinary employment.”
Alongside the information session, the event will hold a raffle for those in attendance. Draw winners can receive a $100 gas card or a range of gift cards. PVJOBS attendees who are already enrolled in one of the organization’s employment programs can receive a free gift card (while supplies last) for their guest if they bring one.
PVJOBS has partnered with several sponsors to support the event, including the Los Angeles Hospitality Training Academy, Conrad Los Angeles and Mobil Corporation. For more information about the event, please call PVJOBS at (323) 432-3955.
