Are you a Bay Area coffee professional looking to take the next step in your career? Or how about a non-coffee professional considering removing the “non” from your title and embarking on a specialty coffee journey? If you are either of these things, then Oakland’s Royal Coffee would like to have a word. Taking place at The Crown on June 28th, the green coffee importing company has teamed up with coffee companies from across the Bay Area to host the first-ever Specialty Coffee Job Fair.
Completely free to attend, the Specialty Coffee Job Fair runs from 10:00am to 2:00pm and includes premier coffee companies like Blue Bottle, Andytown, Equator Coffees, and Red Bay Coffee, with even more expected to be added. The goal of the event, per Royal Coffee’s website, is “to give coffee professionals the opportunity to connect with hiring managers and learn about employment opportunities.”
As well as being a hub for potential employment in the coffee sector, the Specialty Coffee Job Fair doubles as an educational opportunity. During the four-hour event, the Bay Area Coffee Community will host a panel discussion “on key topics facing job seekers in the specialty coffee industry.”
And make sure you come dressed for success. Royal suggests all attendees come in “professional attire” and bring with them printed résumés and cover letters.
It all gets going at 10:00am on June 28th at The Crown in Oakland. While the event is free to attend, Royal does ask that all interested parties RSVP via Eventbrite, which can be done here.
