Nonprofit Click PA to host teen job fair mid-April


Intended as a one-stop site for Palo Alto teens to locate internship and job opportunities, ClickPA will host its Teen Job Fair at 2 p.m. April 15 in the Mitchell Park Library.

“We’re going to be hosting between 10 to 20 different companies and places from around the area where people can get jobs for the summer,” said Soumya Jhaveri, Palo Alto High School junior and ClickPA volunteer.

Run entirely by and for local students, the Teen Job Fair attracted over 200 students last year and offered numerous job opportunities at local businesses.

This year, listings range from waiter positions at Gott’s to counselors at Camp Galileo. In addition to informational booths, the fair will offer a variety of activities and workshops.

“There’s going to be places where you can volunteer, places where you can actually work and get paid [and] places where you can get specific job experience,” Jhaveri said. “They’re also going to be teaching workshops on things like resume building [and] how to interview.”
