Local youth councils to host teen job fair

Teens looking for part-time work, summer jobs, internships, or new career opportunities are invited to participate in a job fair next month.

The Catawba County and Hickory Youth Councils are partnering to present a Teen Job Fair on Tuesday, April 9, from 4:30-6:30 p.m., at the Workforce Solutions Complex on the campus of Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC).

The Teen Job Fair will showcase job and educational opportunities for high school students and recent graduates.

In addition to featuring over a dozen regional employers and resources for professional development, the event will offer participants the opportunity to take a personality career placement quiz.

Job fair attendees will also receive tours of CVCC’s Workforce Solutions Complex and learn about programs offered through the community college.

Registration is not required for teens to attend the job fair.

Employers interested in participating in the event can sign up via the online form at or by contacting a youth council advisor.
