Connecting Employers and Young Job Seekers.

We’re closing the employment gap so everyone wins.

National Youth Hiring Day

On June 16, The Hire Opportunity Coalition and Get Schooled hosted the fourth annual National Youth Hiring Day—a national, free virtual job fair for young people. The event featured 16 leading national employers looking to fill more than 135,000 entry-level jobs.


The Hire Opportunity Coalition has partnered with Stella to build what we hope will become the largest single source of job-seeking opportunity youth in the nation. Stella is a talent platform focused on frontline and entry-level jobs that is shared by dozens of major national companies.
