The event was open to the public and aimed to assist potential employees - many of whom are formerly incarcerated, single parents, veterans and members of poverty alleviation and workforce development programs.

Participating employers joined the citywide effort to offer thousands of positions of all levels to the local New York community. Companies on the job fair floor included: National Football League (NFL), PUMA, Spotify, Union Square Hospitality Group, the New York Yankees, Warner Music Group, JP Morgan, Tiffany & Co., SiriusXM/Pandora, Hot 97, Lowe’s, Madison Square Garden, Amazon, Foot Locker, Live Nation, 40/40 Club and more.

Attendees were treated to a full range of services to build their professional careers such as resume building and interview preparation support, grooming services, access to professional attire, community resources, on-the-spot professional headshots and business cards, and expungement aid – many of which are resources often overlooked.

The community effort from the Roc aligns with a recent move involving NBA star and current Charlotte Hornets guard LaMelo Ball. In September, the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year announced he will be providing a four-year scholarship to a student majoring in Sports Management or Sports Communication & Marketing at the Roc Nation School.
