Working with our neighbors to build a strong community

Job truck in Lincoln Heights

Job Fair Mobile Van

Okay, it’s not a truck, it’s a 40 foot mobile van fully equipped with technology and resources where job seekers could learn how to navigate and apply for jobs at USC and partner organizations.

The USC Health Sciences Campus Office of Community Partnerships (HSC CP) launched a USC jobs awareness on a mobile computer technology van provided by Southeast Community Development Corporation on July 9th at the Abraham Lincoln High School.

The employment program’s goal is to build awareness of available jobs at USC both on the Health Sciences Campus and the University Park Campus.

Jason Maninno and Alby Bocanegra from USC Talent Management provided group and one-on-one assistance on navigating the job portal at USC, setting up an account to apply for jobs and tips on developing successful applications.

More than one hundred individuals participated in this event which also provided health information on cancer prevention through a talk by Dr. Joseph Landolph from USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center to those who were waiting to get onto the mobile technology van.

The USC HSC Office of Community Partnerships within USC Civic Engagement and Economic Development partnered with the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council, City View Terrace Homeowners Association, The Lincoln Heights Chamber of Commerce and Educare Foundation to plan and promote this event.

The event attracted local residents from the area who were seeking jobs and those interested in the opportunities offered at USC. Students from Lincoln High School and Sacred Heart High School also attended the event and felt that they got ideas of the types of jobs exist in health care and other areas that are in demand.

This is the first of a series of similar events on jobs awareness that the USC HSC Community Partnerships Office will implement this year.
