Be a Job Fair
Employer

The hiring event is just around the corner

Is your business or organization actively looking for highly motivated talent in your community? The BrookLynk Youth Job Fair is a great way to connect with young talent that is ready and motivated to begin their professional careers. BrookLynk partners with various community, education, and service partners in the community to connect with young people actively looking for employment opportunities.

As a prospective employer, you will have the opportunity to connect with young people ages 14-25 actively looking for employment opportunities and establish your presence as an employer in the community.

Youth job fairs are an emerging trend and are different in many aspects from a traditional fair. The layout of the fair is designed to support work readiness, increase know-how of navigating a job fair, and boost confidence in hirability.

BrookLynk envisions the youth job fair as an opportunity for youth to engage with employers in the region. Eligibility for our summer program is limited to Brooklyn Center and Brooklyn Park youth 16 and older who meet specific barriers to entry in employment, so the job fair allows ineligible youth including 14 and 15-year-olds to still have access to employment opportunities.
