Queensbury High School to host summer job fair for students

Queensbury students in grades 8-12 looking for summer jobs will be able to attend a job fair Monday, March 20, sponsored by Warren County Department of Workforce Development. 

The job fair will be set up in the lobby of Queensbury High School with about 35 local businesses looking to hire summer help.

This is a great opportunity for students to see the many jobs that are available in the community for the summer, said Queensbury High School Principal Andrew Snide. 

“Having all potential employers available in one location provides ease for students seeking a job,” Snide said, “and may open a new opportunity for students that they may not have had without this.”

High school students will be able to visit the job fair during lunch. Eighth-grade students will be attending the job fair in the morning. 

“As local employers continue to have an abundance of job openings, we know the youth in our community are capable of filling many of those roles,” said  Andrea Kinderman, a youth counselor for Warren County. “Summer jobs are a great way for students to contribute to our workforce while gaining valuable employability and social skills that will set them up for future success.”
