Over 40 employers to be represented

A job fair for youths featuring over 40 employers will be held at the North Bethesda Marriot Hotel on Saturday, May 13.

The fair, which will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will offer students a chance to adjust to the job application process as well as get a summer job. "The job fair would be a great place to get acclimated to the work environment and interview process," said Cathy Henderson Stein, the College and Career Information Center Assistant at Blair.

Both seasonal and permanent job positions will be offered at the fair and some companies will also offer on-site actual and practice interviews. Students attending are encouraged to bring updated resumes and to dress appropriately if they plan to interview.

Companies such as the YMCA, CVS, Aflac and Jiffy Lube, as well as the U.S. Air Force, Army and Marines will be present at the fair, which is targeted towards both students and college graduates.

North Bethesda Marriot Hotel is located at 5701 Marinelli Road North Bethesda, MD 20852 or take the Red line to the White Flint Metro Station. The Marriot is across the street.
