Spring Job Fair

Youth 17-21 years of age are invited to attend

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

“All Wars Memorial Building”

1510 Adriatic Avenue, Atlantic City

Participating Employers include:

~ AC Line ~ AtlantiCare ~ Atlantic County One Stop Career Center ~Golden Corral Grill & Buffet ~ KMart ~ Kelsey & Kim’s Southern Cuisine Restaurants ~ McDonalds ~ Taja Construction ~ US Army ~ Wawa ~ and more!

Below are a few tips to guide you:

If you want to be taken seriously, you must dress appropriately.  Meaning you should not wear jeans, hats, hoodies, scarves, sneakers, or have visible electronic devices.  Your clothes should fit your properly— pants should cover your behind & your underwear ARE NOT visible to others.  Your hair should be neatly styled.

Avoid speaking in slang!  “Yes sir, Yes Miss, Yes ma’am, etc…”  Bring the name & phone number of at least three (3) professional references.  They should not be related to you.   Ask your teachers, a coach, a club advisor your guidance counselor for permission to use them as a reference.  Bring your own pens (not pencil) with you.

You should conduct yourself in a friendly manner.  Smile and greet others with “Good Morning” or “Good Afternoon.”

Go to bed early the night before so that you wake up early, rested, and refreshed.  You will do better when rested.

Sample interview questions are available on this page.  Select the “interview” tab and read through the questions.

The job market is tight.  You are competing with adults for employment.  For you to successfully compete with adults, you must step up your game and show potential employers that you have what it take.  Oh, one last thing.  If you have a résumé, bring extra copies.

Mark your calendar and good luck!



Do You Wana Make Some Cash?

How hard are you willing to earn some extra money?

I know that many of you are desperately seeking part-time jobs. However, I must remind you that Atlantic City is a seasonal town Translation…  Jobs are more plentiful during the summer months. Why?  The tourists are visiting casinos, enjoying the beach, and shopping at the Tanger Outlets and The Pier at Caesars.

Those visitors generate jobs, so this time of year (the winter), when fewer visitors patronize the city, fewer jobs exists.  Once the weather breaks and business picks up, employers will begin hiring again.  Until then… What can you do??

Get your shovels ready to shovel walk ways.  Many elderly residents and local businesses need clean walk ways.  “If” school is closed tomorrow, get up early, grab a friend (ladies this means you too), and offer to help someone shoveling or knock on the door and offer your services.

Pleeeeeease remember your manners!!  “Good Morning!”  “Good Afternoon!” If someone declines an offer to pay you, you have two choices:

 1.  Shovel the walk way anyway (especially if it an elderly person). Consider the gesture a “random act of kindness” or “community service.”

2. Politely and respectfully say, “okay” wish them well and move on to the next place. DO NOT get offended if they cannot pay you!  They may not  have the money to pay you.  Remember there are adults who are needy just like you.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is,

“What are you doing for others?’”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Have a great day!  Be Safe!
