Job Fairs Match Fairfax County Teens, Employers

Supervisor Pat Herrity’s (R-Springfield) office, along with a variety of business and community organizations, hosted two teen job fairs and resume building workshops last year. 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. These two job fairs provided hundreds of teenagers the opportunity to get in front of employers and for employers to find talented Fairfax County students to fill their positions. More than 600 students and more than 70 employers attended both events combined.

This year, Herrity is teaming up with the Supervisors Kathy Smith (D-Sully District), Linda Smyth (D-Providence), and Daniel Storck (D-Mount Vernon) to bring our community four Fairfax County Teen Job Fairs and Resume Building Workshops. It is open to all teens in Fairfax County looking for employment or tips to build their resume. Free booth space will be provided to any business or organization to advertise their available positions. Both teenagers and businesses/organizations may register to attend by visiting http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/springfield/teenjobfair.htm
