The Green Jobs Expo will be facilitated by multiple BIPOC led green businesses that will speak for 5 minutes each. During their speeches, each of the businesses will go over who they are, what their Green Business does, and some of the challenges they face as BIPOC led businesses in a traditionally white-dominated space. These businesses will also talk about the opportunities their businesses seek to explore and scale on, as well as opportunities for future hires. As the event will be marketed to working-age youth who are interested in Green Jobs and Industries, we will be hosting a Mini Job Fair right after the Green Jobs Expo where the youth can sign up for interviews with your Organization.

Burien has a higher rate of unemployment, as compared to the national average. The purpose of this Job Fair event is to create a conducive environment, where multiple recruiters, hiring managers, and employers, can meet with potential employees, in one convenient neutral venue. The Job Fair will enable Green Companies to save time and effort on recruiting, by participating in this event. This will be achieved by giving Job Seekers the opportunity to attend interviews with well-known companies at a Job Fair. Click here if your looking to participate in the Mini Job Fair.
