Coming to Bradford on April 18th from 3pm until 5pm, the community is hosting a young adult job fair featuring 60 companies, organizations, unions and more looking to talk with future leaders about possible job opportunities.
After four years of not hosting this event, last year the Young Adult Job Fair was brought back to the community with one big goal in mind: to help students find job opportunities they didn’t know were there. Last year, the event was hosted in the cafeteria of Indian Trail High School. This year it will take place in the auditorium of Bradford High School, located at 3700 Washington Road in Kenosha.
Through multiple sponsors, students between the ages of 16-24 in the community have the opportunity to learn more about apprenticeships, practice interviewing, and possibly find a job or internship opportunity in a field they’re interested in. There will be 8-10 different unions attending the event, some of those including: Painters & Allied Trades Union, North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters, and Ironworkers Local 8. This is great for students who are looking into going into work right away rather than attending a 4 year university. It is also beneficial for students in high school as well as colleges in the area looking to gain experience within the field.
With over 50 different jobs and even more openings, there’s something for every student walking through the doors. Some highlighted companies and organizations include: Six Flags Great America, Goodwill Talentbridge LLC., Educators Credit Union, Kenosha YMCA, and so many more! Positions range from lifeguards, sales associates, welders, security, and some internship opportunities as well.
