One of the largest young adult job fairs in the area, JobFest, will take place from 12:30-3:30 p.m. on April 18 at the Tacoma Dome.

JobFest provides local young adults ages 16-24 with networking opportunities like face-to-face interactions with over 100 employers who are hiring. Attendees may come away with summer jobs, part-time positions, and full-time employment.

Employers at this year’s event include Horizon Air, Commercial Driving School, Tacoma Police Department, Farmers Insurance, J.C. Penney, Napa Auto Parts, and Starbucks.

With unemployment in Pierce County at 6 percent, JobFest is an important resource for young people looking for jobs.
