Career Fair geared to teens and young adults

Young job seekers can connect with the resources and information they need to become members of the regional workforce by attending the Young Adult Career and Job Fair at the Yavapai County Juvenile Justice Center in Prescott, 1100 Prescott Lakes Parkway, from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 16.

Geared toward people ages 16 to 24, this job fair is not specifically about obtaining employment — it will also help young people learn about available employment resources and how to obtain essential job skills.

“The employers at this fair will be focused on young people, and the (Yavapai College Regional Economic Development Center) and our community partners will include a component to strengthen the soft skills for these job seekers. That is, how they present themselves both in their resume and in person, and how they interact during their interview,” said Richard Hernandez, Yavapai College’s director of REDC. 

“I’m constantly hearing from area businesses that applicants need development in this area. Beyond the fair, the REDC and YC are evaluating those soft skills needed and the possible solutions to this need throughout Yavapai County,” he added.

For the second year, the REDC is collaborating with Goodwill of Central and Northern Arizona, Arizona@WORK, NACOG, and the Yavapai County Juvenile Justice Center to bring employers and young job seekers together in one place. 

A list of participating employers and organizations, including the YC Career and Technical Education Center, the Prescott Fire Department and Grand Canyon National Park Lodges, is available on the YC REDC website, yc.edu/REDC. 

If you’re planning to attend the fair, you can get preparation assistance in advance, including resume review and interview tips, either from Arizona@Work, or the Goodwill Career Center.

Additional information about the job fair is available by calling 928-776-2008.
