Promising Practice of the Month

November 2017


L.A. Tech Talent Challenge
Los Angeles


Bixel Exchange, in partnership with L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and the Mayor’s Tech Council, is placing 100 diverse young adult interns at L.A. tech companies as part of the Mayor’s Hire LA’s Youth Initiative and the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce’s L.A. Talent Challenge. In early June, the team held 56 first-round mock interviews to better assess the interest area of each student and to help students prepare for real-world interviews.
