Fairfax County to Host Teen Job Fairs, Résumé Building Workshops

Supervisor Pat Herrity (R-Springfield) has announced a schedule of upcoming Teen Job Fairs and Résumé Building Workshops.

“They give our teens the opportunity to speak with employers, and businesses an opportunity to connect with teens looking for jobs. Many teens have left the fair with actual jobs and many more with scheduled interviews,” said Herrity. “Since holding my first teen job fair in 2014 at West Springfield High School, I have partnered with the Connection Newspapers, other Supervisors, local chambers of commerce, Fairfax County Public Schools and the county government to grow to six job fairs this year across the county. During our four job fairs last year we had combined attendance of over 2,000 Fairfax County teenagers and 120 employers. These job fairs provided hundreds of teenagers the opportunity to get in front of employers, and for employers and volunteer organizations to find talented, driven Fairfax County students to fill their positions.”
