The 100,000 Opportunities Initiative is hosting a job fair for young people between the ages of 16 and 24 not in work or school. The fair will be at the CenturyLink Events Center from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. on May 5.
At the fair will be 28 companies, including Alaska Airlines, Microsoft, Nordstrom, and Starbucks, interviewing for positions. Some positions available may require little prior experience, though this will vary from employer to employer.
Attendees will be able to walk around the fair to learn about the companies. Additionally, organizations dedicated to career development, education opportunities, civic engagement, and legal resources will be at the fair.
Registration on the 100,000 Opportunities website is required to secure job interviews.
