Local Employers to Participate in Second Annual Job Fair for Teens at Fayette County Public Library on Saturday, April 4

Spring is in the air, and many teenagers are starting to think about summer jobs. In these tough economic times, competition is fierce, and this year’s job search may be even more challenging than usual for young people just entering the world of work. The Fayette County Public Library is hosting its second annual Teen Job Fair on Saturday, April 4, from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m. The job fair is open to everyone between the ages of 15 and 18, and admission is free.

“We had a phenomenally successful job fair for teens last April, and hosting another one this year makes sense for everybody,” says public services librarian Christy Dyson, the teen activities coordinator at Fayette County Public Library. The Teen Job Fair provides an opportunity for job-hunting teenagers and area employers to meet in a relaxed and non-threatening atmosphere. Representatives from businesses looking to hire young people for the summer will have tables set up in the library meeting room. Participating employers will have job application forms ready to fill out, and will be prepared to conduct interviews with job seekers on the spot. Every teenager in attendance will be eligible to enter a drawing for one of two door prizes, courtesy of the Friends of the Fayette County Public Library.

Local businesses in attendance at the Teen Job Fair will include Bruster’s Ice Cream, Upscale Pizza, McDonalds, Chick-fil-A, Stevi B’s Pizza, Marble Slab Creamery, Smoothie King, Monkey Joe’s, and others. Job seekers aged 15-18 are encouraged to dress in business casual attire, put on their best attitudes, and show up at the library on April 4 between 2:00 and 4:00 to get a head start on their summer employment plans.

The Fayette County Public Library is located behind the Fayette County administration complex in downtown Fayetteville, at the southwest corner of Highways #85 and #54. For additional information about the Teen Job Fair, please contact the library at 770-461-8841 or visit online at
