Supervisor Pat Herrity (R-Springfield) has issued the following announcement:
“My office and Connection Newspapers, along with a variety of Supervisors’ offices, businesses, and community organizations, have hosted very successful teen job fairs and career-building workshops for the past few years. These events focused on students and younger job seekers looking for a variety of employment opportunities; full time, after-school, seasonal positions, internship opportunities, and volunteer positions. The fairs have provided thousands of teenagers the opportunity to get in front of employers and for employers to find talented Fairfax County students to fill their positions.
This year I am once again teaming up with Connection Newspapers, Fairfax County Government, Fairfax County Public Schools, Chairman McKay, and Supervisors Palchik, Smith, Storck, Lusk, and Walkinshaw to bring our community five Fairfax County Teen Job Fairs and Career-Building Workshops. They will be open to all teens in Fairfax County looking for employment, or tips on career-building skills like networking, building a resume or LinkedIn profile, and interviewing. Free booth space will be provided to any business or organization to advertise their available positions. Both teenagers and businesses or organizations may register to attend by visiting the following link: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/springfield/teenjobfairs
First jobs are important, and these events help connect teens with employers face to face and prepare our youth for the workforce. Please view the Fairfax County Teen Job Fair schedule below:
