In February, more than 200 teens came to the Library in hopes of landing their first job. We gathered local businesses looking to hire teens, provided experts to give teens tips on improving their resumes and interviewing skills, and made it simple for teens to connect with potential employers.
The best part about the Teen Job Fair? Teens got hired!
One lucky teen is Victoria Smith. She was hired by British Swim School as an instructor and is already busy 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.”
With another successful Teen Job Fair under our belt, we think it’s safe to say, Mission: Accomplished.
And there’s no need to wait until next February if you or your teen is looking for a job now. Stop by any time and we’ll help connect you with the tools and resources you need for a successful job search.
