Arapahoe, Douglas, Denver Counties Join Forces for Annual Youth Job Fair

Arapahoe, Douglas, Denver Counties Join Forces for Annual Youth Job Fair

Anyone age 14-21 already on the lookout for a summer job in Arapahoe, Douglas and Denver Counties will find their best opportunity at a regional job fair from 2-6 p.m. Wednesday, March 11, at the Colorado Convention Center (700 14th St.).

An annual event associated with the Governor’s Summer Youth Job Hunt, the fair this year marks the first time the three counties have collaborated to provide youth the chance to conduct a Denver metro area job search under one roof. The Denver Office of Economic Development and Arapahoe/Douglas Works! have partnered for this important employment initiative.

The Governor’s Summer Job Hunt assists young adults by matching their skills, interests and work experience with appropriate employers. Offered annually, the program looks to expose youths to the working world in several exciting fields, including retail, restaurants, hospitality, catering, recreation, sports and entertainment. 

For young people to connect with these employers, they will need to bring a photo ID and their Social Security Number. Because on-site interviews are a possibility, attendees should dress professionally and bring multiple hard copies of their resumes.

For more information contact the Denver Workforce Development’s Youth Services at (720) 865-5700 or Arapahoe/Douglas Youth in the Works! at (303) 636-1260.
