2024 Fairfax County Teen Job Fairs


My office and Fairfax County Public Schools, and Fairfax County Times Newspapers, DFS Public Assistance and Employment Services Division, along with businesses and community organizations, including our local chambers, have hosted very successful teen job fairs and career-building workshops for the past seven years. These events focused on students and young job seekers looking for a variety of employment opportunities; full time, after-school, seasonal positions, internship opportunities, and volunteer positions.

The fairs have provided thousands of teenagers the opportunity to get in front of employers and for our employers to find talented Fairfax County students to fill their positions. Even during the pandemic, we were able to host two virtual fairs that were very successful. Last year, we had over 1,500 students and roughly 100 businesses participate.

This year, I am teaming up with Fairfax County Times Newspapers, Fairfax County Public Schools, as well as local chambers and organizations to bring our community two Fairfax County Teen Job Fairs and Career-Building Workshops. The fairs will run on two Saturdays in March.

The fairs are open to all teens in Fairfax County looking for employment, volunteer opportunities, or tips on building their resume.

Student registration is free and open to all teens in Fairfax County looking for employment, volunteer opportunities, or tips on building their resume.

Business registration is also free and open to any organization providing positions for students. Free table space and a complimentary table covering will be provided to registered businesses and organizations to advertise their available positions. Participating businesses must provide positions for students at the fair; soliciting without offering positions is not permitted.

The full list of participating businesses from last year's Teen Job Fair Series, is available for viewing.
