Young adults and youth looking for employment can find multiple industries under one roof at the Youth and College Students Career Fair on Wednesday.

The day kicks of with a Youth and College Students Career Launch Seminar from 9 to 11 a.m. to assist students ages 13 to 22 on how to effectively search for jobs. Information about volunteer opportunities for the younger teens is targeted to boost a resume or college application will also be available, said Teresa Shipman, program manager of Fort Hood’s employment readiness branch.

The job fair is from 1 to 3 p.m. for students ages 16 to 22. Industries represented include logistics, warehousing, customer service, data entry, hospitality, customer care, personal care, financial, government, law enforcement and the armed services, Shipman said.

“It’s a good, diversified audience of employers looking to recruit job applicants from our military family,” she said. “Employers know this is the audience and that’s what’s important — that employers know who is going to be there.”

This is the 20th year to host the young adult job fair at Fort Hood. Last year, about 50 percent of attendees secured employment.

“Employers are very impressed with our impressive applicants that come out this career fair,” Shipman said.
