More than 40 employers are expected to be on hand for Mayor Hagerty’s Summer Youth Employment Program Job Fair, to be held at Evanston Township High School on Saturday, March 3, from 8 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

Employers seeking workers for both summer and year-round employment include NorthShore University HealthSystem, Northwestern University, Rotary International, Six Flags Great America, McGaw YMCA, Salvation Army Evanston, YoFresh Yogurt Café, and Cinemark/Century Theatres, among others.

To be eligible, prospective workers must be at least 14 years of age as of June 11, be enrolled in school, and live in Evanston zip codes 60201 and 60202.

Youth ages 17 and 18 years are especially encouraged to attend the job fair, as many opportunities exist for both summer and year-round employment.

Last year, more than 800 Evanston youth attended the event and found more than 1,000 jobs available.

Those who are really serious about finding a job are encouraged to attend a Pre-Fair Resume & Interview Skills Workshop, sponsored by the Youth Job Center. A final workshop will be held in the ETHS South Cafeteria on Saturday, Feb. 24, from 9 a.m. to noon. Register at the city’s website.

Additional information about the program is also available on the city’s website.
