LEWISTON — The Lewiston Youth Advisory Council is planning an interactive job fair at the Lewiston Armory from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 12.

Jazz music will be the backdrop for “Jazz Up Your Future,” with a special  4 p.m. performance by the Lewiston High School Jazz Band.

The armory is at 65 Central Ave.

LYAC is seeking Lewiston employers who would like to participate. There is no charge for a business to participate, and a table and two chairs will be provided. Space is limited. Lewiston employers who want to participate can sign up at www.lewistonmaine.gov/jazzupyourfuture

Participant employers are asked to have applications on hand and table stickers provided by LYAC will indicate if a business will be conducting on-the-spot interviews in a breakout room or on-the-spot scheduling of future interviews.

Participant employers are also asked to provide handouts sheet about their employment offers, as well provide an interactive element at their table, such as a video about their business, food samples if a restaurant, menus if a restaurant, product coupons, or giveaways such as pens/t-shirts, etc.

Youth are also a focus of the job fair, and LYAC wants to be sure that there will be multiple employers on site who embrace hiring young people. As LYAC plans for the event, they will also be pursuing employment supports for attendees, such as resources for business attire and haircuts.
