Hennepin County Board Chair Mike Opat: “The Hennepin County Library is not only an excellent year-round resource for adults seeking jobs. The Teen Job Fair last year connected more than 1,000 teens to prospective employers, making it a hugely successful initiative and one we are proud to provide again, especially in this difficult economy.”
Hennepin County Commissioner Peter McLaughlin: “The Teen Job Fair is a wonderful venue to connect prospective employers and talented teens in our community, and the library is an important ongoing resource to teens as they seek to gain job-hunting skills and work experience.”
Hennepin County Library is presenting the Teen Job Fair in collaboration with the City of Minneapolis Employment and Training Program, South Minneapolis WorkForce Center’s The Zone, and the Mall of America.
