Bay Area business executives gave free advice to the students at Mission Career-Link Center in the city's Mission District today.

The event is a partnership between the San Francisco Unified School District and Match-Bridge, a community project of the United Way.

"There aren't a lot of opportunities for young people who are lacking the experience and the skills for the workplace," event organizer Emily Linaman said.

Information from today's interviews will be used to match qualified students with a six-week paid internship this summer.
