FCPS High School Students Invited to 2017 Teen Job Fairs

Fairfax County high school students looking for their first part-time job, summer and seasonal job opportunities, or who want more information about potential career pathways are invited to attend one of four upcoming teen job fairs in Fairfax County.  Job fairs will be held as follows:

  • Saturday, March 18, 10 a.m. to noon, Chantilly High School, 4201 Stringfellow Road, Chantilly. Co-sponsored by Supervisor Kathy Smith, Chantilly STEM Academy, and the Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce.
  • Saturday, March 18, 1 to 3 p.m., Oakton High School, 2900 Sutton Road, Vienna. Co-sponsored by Supervisor Linda Smyth and Oakton High.
  • Saturday, April 1, noon to 2 p.m., West Springfield High School, 6100 Rolling Road, Springfield. Co-sponsored by West Springfield High Student Government and the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce.
  • Saturday, April 29, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., South County High School, 8501 Silverbrook Road, Lorton. Co-sponsored by Supervisor Dan Storck, the South Fairfax Chamber of Commerce, and the South County Federation.

Local businesses and agencies will be on hand to offer a range of opportunities including part-time employment, internships, and volunteer work for prospective students.  Free booth spaces are provided to local businesses.

Supervisor Pat Herrity established the first teen job fair; it was so well attended that Herrity expanded the job fairs countywide and found co-sponsors in members of the Board of Supervisors, Fairfax County public schools, and local chambers of commerce.

At the Chantilly High job fair, students can take a resumé workshop, scheduled to run concurrently during the event.

Online registration is available for students interested in attending.  Complete information about the Teen Job Fairs is available online.
