Youth age 17 and 18 years are especially encouraged to attend the job fair, as many opportunities exist for both summer and year-round employment.
"Thanks to our employers, community organizations, volunteers and City staff, there are hundreds of rewarding job opportunities available at this year's fair," said Mayor Stephen Hagerty. "I encourage all Evanston students to attend and find a great summer or year-round position."
Attendees are highly encouraged to fill out a Summer Youth Employment Program application in advance, which will expedite the process at the job fair. Applications are available at cityofevanston.org/msyep.
