In February, we expect more than 200 teens to come to the Library in hopes of landing their first job. We’re gathering local businesses looking to hire teens, providing experts to give teens tips on improving their resumes and interviewing skills, making it simple for teens to connect with potential employers.
The best part about our Teen Job Fair? Teens get hired!
One lucky teen is Victoria Smith. She was hired by British Swim School as an instructor after our 2016 Teen Job Fair and got busy right away, teaching swim lessons to little ones. Victoria is a former swim team member and has been swimming since she was young.
“This is my dream job,” Victoria said. “I love the water and working with kids, so this is the perfect job for me!”
“We were very lucky to find Victoria at the Library’s Teen Job Fair,” said British Swim School Aquatics Director Brian Gibboney. “I’m so glad we took the time to attend the fair. We walked away with lots of great candidates and were able to hire Victoria right away.” Mission: Accomplished.
Are you looking for a job (or do you know a teen who is)? Our next Teen Job Fair is coming up on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 1-3 p.m. at our Central Library.
