Getting a job in this economy can be difficult, but teens can get the edge by attending Saturday's job fair.
Conducted by the cities of Pleasanton, Dublin and San Ramon and the Dublin/San Ramon Women's Club, the fair will connect teens ages 14-19 to more than 30 employers, including Wal-Mart, YMCA, Jamba Juice, the Alameda County Fair, Best Buy, In-N-Out Burger and the Pleasanton Library. There will also be information on volunteer positions.
The free fair also includes several workshops on how to get a job, mock interviews, how to dress for a job interview and other techniques.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for teens in the workplace," said Hiram Berhel, a teen supervisor for the city of Pleasanton. "For those are too young to work, there are volunteer opportunities so that when they become eligible to be employed, they'll be in a real good position."
The Valley Teen Job and Community Service Fair will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 28 at the Shannon Community Center, located at 11600 Shannon Ave. in Dublin.
