A job fair for teens and young adults will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 13, at the media center at Rich South High School, 5000 Sauk Trail in Richton Park.
U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill., is organizing the event as her sixth Youth Job Expo specifically for persons ages 16 to 23.
More than 50 employers will be accepting applications for active job openings, summer internships and apprenticeships. Representatives from various agencies and youth services will also be on hand to talk with young people about program offerings that will help them succeed.
Business attire is highly recommended. Prospective employees should bring resumes as some employers may conduct interviews on-site.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Parking is available near the school’s auditorium, just off Sauk Trail on the north end of the school’s west lot.
Prior to the expo, Rep. Kelly is sponsoring a job readiness workshop at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 3, to help young people enhance their interview skills, build their resumes and improve on other traits important for the job market. The workshop is also at Rich South High School.
