Looking for a job? Jay-Z‘s got you covered.

The rapper’s company, Roc Nation, in conjunction with the Reform Alliance, a criminal justice advocacy organization, is hosting a job fair at Madison Square Garden on November 18. 

The event, dubbed the Team Roc New York Job Fair, will feature openings for “at least 1,000 entry-level jobs” in addition to “career readiness resources, including professional attire, resume building/review, expungement services, and more.” 

Companies including Zara, Lowe’s, Amazon, Foot Locker, Live Nation and VICE will be among those conducting interviews on site. 

In a press release on Wednesday, Team Roc managing director Dania Diaz said, “The Team Roc New York Job Fair is a real opportunity for socio-economic mobility for New Yorkers – those who want to work, yet have not had the exposure or connections to the right-fit jobs, or to the support services that can strengthen their prospects for employment,” according to Page Six

Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez added, “My hope is this event will not only stimulate New York’s economy but pair the state’s best and brightest employees with the country’s leading organizations.”
