“Qualified candidates applying through our website will have the opportunity to be interviewed for these positions before the general public,” said Joyce Sloss, director of LAWA’s Business and Job Resources Division, which manages the First Source Hiring Program. “Walk-ins are welcome to bring their resumes in the afternoon, but an interview is not guaranteed. That is why we encourage all interested candidates to apply through the web site.”
