National Youth Hiring day is on June 16 and we want you to start your job search with your best foot forward. Join us to connect with employers, grow your network, and even land a great job! Here's what to do before the job fair: 

1. Do your research: Check out the companies attending the hiring fair (scroll down to see the list of job opportunities by state). Go to their website and look at their careers' pages, see what they are posting on social, and think about which companies you want to meet with.

2. Get your resume ready. Send it to us - we'll review it for free and give you feedback. Don't have a resume yet? Use our free template to start building your first resume. 

3. Learn more about filling out important sections in a job application- like how to consent to a background check.

4. Prepare for your interviews. Our job interview tips can help you practice for your phone, video, or in-person interviews. Use this time to practice the questions you can ask employers in your interviews. Here are some suggestions

  • What is the most challenging thing about working here?
  • What are the top skills or attributes that your company values?
  • What does a typical week look like in this position?
