BRIDGEPORT – Youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who are looking for a job are invited to a Summer Youth Job Fair Monday, June 11, from 3pm to 6 pm at Housatonic Community College, 900 Lafayette Blvd, Bridgeport, CT.
Over 25 employers will be participating and services will be available also. Youth are urged to dress to impress, arrive on time, bring a resume if they have one, and be prepared to interview for employment on the spot.
“With the cutbacks in many programs this summer, we wanted to make sure youth have options this summer,” said Career Resources President/CEO Scott K. Wilderman. “For many people that first summer job is where they learn responsibility and work ethic. Our kids need that, and these employers are stepping up.”
