The Bloomington Youth Job Fair is an annual event that helps high school students find jobs and employers hire qualified high school students.
Each spring, in the Bloomington Civic Plaza, hundreds of students have the opportunity to meet, learn about, and interview with employers who have openings for high school students. Students are invited to stop by employer's booths, fill out applications and - in some cases - undergo interviews on the spot for positions that range from weekend, part-time and full-time summer jobs to internships.
Information on the 2016 Job Fair will be available soon.
Employers who are interested in participating in the Job Fair are urged to register early because space is limited.
Students interested in attending are encouraged to dress for possible on-site interviews. They should also bring a list of references and a job history with them.
The Job Fair was originally started by BUY members in 2007. In 2009, Bloomington Daymakers Rotary took a leadership role in organizing this effort as a club service project.
