Jack in the Box hiring event

SDWP’s youth employment program CONNECT2Careers (C2C) held three successful recruitment events around San Diego County for Jack in the Box® this summer. A total of 60 participants interviewed on-site at the events for the opportunity to work with the locally-based fast-food restaurant chain.

One of the recruitments took place at the central San Diego location of San Diego Metro Region Career Centers and led to 19 on-site interviews. Additional hiring events took place at the North County Region Career Centers in Escondido, leading to eight on-site interviews, and at the South County Career Center in Chula Vista, leading to 33 on-site interviews.

A total of 20 participants from the hiring events were placed in jobs with regional locations of the restaurant chain.

C2C referred an additional 22 participants to Jack in the Box for employment consideration after the hiring events took place. These participants are being interviewed as of this writing.

“We thank Jack in the Box for being in a leader in the development of our future workforce. Its commitment to C2C and hiring young job seekers is a shining example of what is needed from employers across our region — to provide invaluable real-world opportunities to our young adults,” says Peter Callstrom, President and CEO of San Diego Workforce Partnership.

Representatives of Jack in the Box told C2C staff that they are very happy with the quality of candidates they interviewed. They even cited specific names of youth recruited in prior year events as being successful hires.

C2C is transitioning from a summer employment program to a year-round program working with youth ages 16–24 to align their career aspirations and educational backgrounds with businesses committed to developing our emerging workforce.
