Several hundred metro area youth expected to attend Minneapolis Teen Job and Opportunity Fair on April 30

On Saturday, April 30, more than 700 teens are expected to attend the 10th annual Minneapolis Teen Job and Opportunity Fair taking place at the Hennepin County Library - Minneapolis Central, 300 Nicollet Mall from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The event is free to attend and pre-registration is not required.

The Minneapolis Teen Job and Opportunity Fair is a great way for teens aged 14 to 19 to connect to job-search resources and find out more about available volunteer, internship, training, and employment opportunities. More than forty businesses and organizations are expected to exhibit including TJ Maxx, Mall of America, Lunds and Byerlys, and Home Depot.

Teens should come dressed to impress, prepared to network with potential employers, and distribute resumes. Hennepin County librarians will be on hand with laptops, a scanner, and a printer, as well as support in finding resources to support the teens’ job/career/opportunity searches. A complete list of exhibitors can be found available on the City of Minneapolis website. The event can also be followed on social media by using the hashtag #levelup2k16.
