Special to The Advocate
Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the City of Everett’s Recreation and Youth Development Department will host the Everett Youth Job Fair on Saturday, March 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Everett Recreation Center (47 Elm St.). Through this event, Everett’s youth who are ages 14-25 are invited to bring their resume and explore potential job opportunities, internships and career paths from a diverse range of employers from various industries. Those who attend can engage in live chats with recruiters and representatives and connect with professionals in their desired field, as well as learn more about the City’s annual Summer Youth Work Program and the upcoming year-round workforce program.
The event is also a great opportunity for employers to showcase their brand and connect with the next generation of young professionals. Provide valuable insights into your industry, company culture and available positions while also conducting on-the-spot interviews and initial screenings with potential candidates.
“We’re looking to help give our City’s youth the chance to have access to as many of the opportunities out there that are available to them,” said Mayor DeMaria. “We encourage as many businesses and youth who are interested to take part in this fantastic networking opportunity.”
Under the direction of Everett’s Director of Youth Development and Enrichment, John Russolillo, the newly created Recreation and Youth Development Department looks to provide Everett’s youth access to a diverse range of career opportunities in various career fields. The department plans to focus on developing programming that will prepare Everett’s youth for the transition into adulthood.
“As the new Director of Youth Development for the City of Everett, I am thrilled to empower and inspire the youth, and I am eager to contribute to their growth and success,” said Russolillo. “As we approach the upcoming Youth Job Fair, I recognize the profound impact it can have on shaping the futures of our young individuals.
