Greater Wausau Youth Hiring & Career Fest
March 7 @ 7:15 am - 3:00 pm
The event is presented by the United Way of Marathon County and Boys & Girls Club of the Wausau Area, in partnership with the D.C. Everest Area School District and the Wausau School District and members of a planning committee. We anticipate roughly 2,000 high school students will attend throughout the day.
This is an opportunity for high school students to network with colleges and businesses to learn about post-secondary education and career options. Additionally, employers that offer Youth Apprenticeships, summer employment, or part-time employment opportunities for teens will be able to network with youth seeking employment. This event's goal is to educate youth about career and college opportunities and learn more about our community—please keep in mind that this may be a teen's first experience talking with a business/college/organization. Meaningful career conversations help teens plan for their futures and increase future wage earnings (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development).
