Boston Latino Career Expo and “Destination: Opportunity” MBTA Employment Fair
Posted May 2023
Earlier this month, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) capped off its month-long recruitment outreach in the Boston community at the El Mundo Boston Latino Career Expo and “Destination: Opportunity” MBTA Employment Fair on May 4 and May 6, 2023, in Boston. ITLC/TWC’s Senior Communications Specialist David Stephen attended to provide ongoing technical assistance. With dozens of attendees at the fair on May 4, the Latino Career Expo sought to link high-quality Latino talent with employers throughout the Boston area from various careers. Later that week, on May 6, representatives from various MBTA departments were on site at the Revere Beach station, along with iHeartRadio as a sponsor, and a complimentary ice cream truck, to answer questions regarding career opportunities and paths for growth with the MBTA. “This was a very informative opportunity to learn about the job market in Boston, interact with the MBTA, and see its approach. We hope this will begin a strong relationship around recruitment and retention for its frontline workers,” said David.
