Worksystems to Co-Host Jobs Fair for Disconnected Youth

March 6th, 2018

Worksystems is partnering with Gateway to College and the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative to host a Youth Jobs Fair on April 13th aimed at helping disadvantaged youth re-connect with school and work. More than 30 Portland-based employers with immediate job opportunities will be hiring including Starbucks, OHSU, Portland Parks and Recreation and Salt & Straw.

Youth will also be able to register for a paid internship through our SummerWorks program to participate in a work experience with an area employer that includes work readiness training.

The Jobs Fair will also feature:

  • Opportunities to register for high school completion/GED programs
  • Pre-apprenticeship training information
  • Hands-on assistance completing job applications, writing a resume/cover letter, and practice interviewing
  • Resources to help youth with barriers including transportation discounts, child care and housing information, assistance expunging records, and access to free job-related clothing.

This event is FREE for youth and open to the public. Registration begins March 12!
