Connecting local teens with employment & volunteer opportunities.

March 2, 2019, 2-4 pm

Maurices representativeThe Pflugerville Public Library hosts a Teen Job Pfair each year in early March. This event is a great opportunity for local businesses to find part-time and seasonal employees.

The 2018 Teen Job Pfair featured 15 employers and had over 200 teens in attendance.

Organizations with volunteer opportunities and internships are also welcome to participate.

This event is free to both employers and teens. Teens do NOT need to register to attend.

Employers and volunteer organizations interested in participating in this free event may register online. The registration deadline for employers has been extended through February 27.

The Pfair is open to teens ages 14 to 19, but keep in mind that employers set varying minimum age requirements and that positions for teens under the age of 16 are very limited.

Job Fair Tips for Teens

Don’t be nervous. The employers at the Pfair are excited for the opportunity to meet you.

Before the Pfair, practice shaking hands, using good eye contact, and speaking clearly. 

Bring copies of your resume. Even if employers don’t require one, it is helpful to have one to refer to when filling out job applications. You will need your address, social security number, relevant education and experience, and references.

Bring a pen and small notebook to take notes.

Dress neatly and comfortably. You don’t need a suit, but skip the t-shirt and jeans.

Silence your cell phone and leave it in your pocket or purse.

Ask your parents to wait outside the job fair. You will make a better impression on employers if you approach them on your own.

Don’t chew gum or eat while speaking to employers.
