Teens interested in working for the city or other local employers this summer are urged to attend a job fair Saturday at Evanston Township High School.

Last year, more than 625 youth, 14 years of age and older, attended the fair, a key ingredient  in the mayor’s summer youth employment program, and 504 were hired.

Among the job categories covered: automotive, retail, payroll services, hospitality, administrative, maintenance, technical, and film.

The 2015 Job Fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 28 at the school, 1600 Dodge Ave. Doors will close at 1:30 p.m. Youth are encouraged to fill out a Summer Youth Employment Program application in advance of the job fair. The application is available on line.

To attend, youth must be enrolled in school and be at least 14 years of age when the employment program begins in mid-June and live only in ZIP codes 60201 or 60202. Youth may be required to take a pre-hire drug test.
