Teens Attend Pop-Up Job Fair
Teens need summer jobs, and businesses have open positions to fill. Volusia County Schools’ Pop-Up Job Fair for Teens was the solution!
Fifteen businesses and 250 students attended the Job Fair for Teens at University High School in Orange City on June 9. A second Job Fair was held at Mainland High in Daytona Beach, with 23 businesses and 100 students.
VCS students were excited about the opportunity to gain job experience and earn some extra money. They filled the University High cafeteria and Mainland gymnasium, talking to employers, filling out applications and, for some, learning about the hiring process for the very first time. Some students were hired on the spot.
Businesses attending included restaurants, grocery stores, a drug store, manufacturers, attractions, healthcare system, and nursing home. AdventHealth, the official healthcare champion of Volusia County Schools, was also recruiting volunteers.
Volusia County Schools has created a website to help teens find employment opportunities on an ongoing basis. VCS works closely with CareerSource Flagler and Volusia Counties, and the site also has information about upcoming job fairs and a free virtual resume review.
For adults looking for jobs, please remember Volusia County Schools has career opportunities for teachers, bus drivers and attendants, School Way Café and paraprofessionals.
