Discovery Cube Los Angeles Brings Jobs to San Fernando Valley
New interactive science museum will use Sept. 24 and 27 job fairs to fill 100 full- and part-time positions in the Valley
LOS ANGELES (Sept. 19, 2014) – Come November 13, there will be 71,000 square feet of new reasons for L.A. residents to visit the Hansen Dam Recreational Area of the San Fernando Valley.
That’s the date Discovery Cube Los Angeles officially opens to the public – and to host and inspire the 180,000 visitors expected during the first year, the Discovery Science Foundation is partnering with the local America’s Job Center of California (AJCC) to host two job fairs designed to fill more than 100 new job positions in the Valley.
The new positions will staff the Discovery Cube Los Angeles, a new interactive science center taking shape on the site of the former Children’s Museum of Los Angeles in the Lake View Terrace neighborhood. In partnership with the local AJCC, Discovery Cube LA will host job fairs in search of qualified employees for the two-story, state-of-the-art museum facility.
“Since the San Fernando Valley is the new home of Discovery Cube LA, we are delighted to be able to bring exciting new employment opportunities to our neighborhood,” said Discovery Cube LA Executive Director Kafi Blumenfield. “We’re confident that we can find local talent here in the Valley and candidates who share our passion for hospitality, science and hands-on learning.”
Interviews will be for both full- and part-time positions, which will vary in daily duties, required skills, and experience. In addition to hosting the job fairs, the local AJCC will offer resources, expertise, and community network to applicants.
