    Starbucks will hold a career fair for San Diego refugees on Tuesday in El Cajon, part of the company's larger effort to hire thousands of refugees. 

    "At Starbucks, we are committed to helping refugee communities create new paths and build their future in their new home," a flyer for the event reads, inviting refugees living in San Diego to an El Cajon spot for on-the-spot interviews. 

    From 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., job seekers are invited to stop by the International Rescue Committee at 131 E. Main Street in El Cajon. Lunch will be provided. 

    Participants will be able to take part in one-on-one interviews and end their day with Starbucks hiring managers. 

    Those interested are encouraged to apply online ahead of time and bring their resume and application to the event. Applicants will need to have work authorization and will go through the same review and background check as all applicants. 

    The event is part of a larger, five-year effort by the company to hire 10,000 refugees.
