Job Opportunity


Hi, my name is Savannah Reber, and I am starting an online gourmet sweet shop.  I am looking for people to hire who can help finalize some recipe’s and answer some questions I have about some of my products.  If I find the right person who can work hard then I would even be interested in hiring long term.  If someone could get back to me detailing what I need to do to start the process of finding someone who could help me out. I would greatly appreciate it.

We are hosting our annual Halloween Masquerade Charity Gala on October 30 this year, and are eager to showcase new talent at the event.  What we are looking for are two students who will carve elegant and festive pumpkins to put on display, as well as carve on-site. This will allow our guests to view and appreciate the work put into it, as well as the beauty of the finished product. For the students, it is an opportunity to be seen by and connect with nationally and locally known business leaders and celebrities. I will be interviewing artists on Saturday, September 19th. Please contact me this week with students who have the talent and the desire to be part of our event. They can also contact me directly via email or phone.

Job Opportunity


I own a new food truck here in the valley and I am interested in hiring a culinary student or two to help us both front and back of house. Casa De Soul has been open for five months. We specialize in Latin American and Southern soul food. We operate out of a 14ft trailer with a full kitchen built in.  Rate is $10/hr and events typically are 3-4 hours long. I can offer 2-3 shifts a week this month and hopefully the same next month.

Fight for it! Work for it! Show us that you want it. Our first practice/meeting will be Monday October 27th from 9:00 to 11:30 at the UCCU center kitchen.
