On June 18, Menomonee Valley Partners (MVP) and Layton Boulevard West Neighbors (LBWN) collaborated on a Neighborhood Job Recruitment event to connect Valley companies who are hiring with nearby residents who are seeking employment.
Hundreds of family-supporting jobs are within a 5-10 minute walk/drive from neighborhoods south of the Valley. MVP and LBWN partnered on a new model of a job fair, bringing the job fair and job opportunities directly to the residents in and near the Silver City neighborhood at 5Wise Workshop (3524 W National Ave).
Job seekers were invited to drop-in, apply on the spot, and in some cases interview then and there. Translation services were also available.
Thank you to Charter Wire LLC, Employ Milwaukee, Ingeteam, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, Professional Placement Services, and Rishi Tea for joining us and speaking with great candidates from neighborhoods surrounding the Valley!
