The Young Adult Job Fair (YAJF), presented annually by the City of Greeley and Employment Services of Weld County (ESWC), returns to Greeley on Wednesday, March 27 at the Island Grove Event Center, 501 N. 14th Ave., from 5-7 p.m.

The YAJF is a free event specifically catered to young adults, ages 14 to 24, who are looking for opportunities in the Weld County workforce. Attendees have the chance to meet with businesses that are currently hiring, build their resumes, take professional headshots, and more. On the other side of the coin, employers are afforded the chance to speak with several motivated applicants who are eager to take early steps in their careers.

“The Young Adult Job Fair is a great place to take that first step into the workforce,” said Andrew Chadwick, Business Services Manager for the Weld County Department of Human Services. “There are always a great variety of employers represented, so there’s a little something for everyone in terms of the work that’s offered. Plus, there are full-time, part-time, and seasonal options, so there’s often a good connection to whatever type of commitment you’re looking for.”

To young adults planning on attending the event, Chadwick says it’s a good idea to bring copies of a current resume, both to leave for employers and to potentially get help with making it more noticeable for the future. It’s also recommended that attendees have their social security number handy for quick registration. Pre-registration can also be taken care of at

Be sure to stop by the Greeley Recreation booth if you are 14-15 years old, and learn about the Summer Teen Employment Program (STEP). Several seasonal positions are available with the City of Greeley Culture, Parks and Recreation Department and applications will be available at the event. Online applications will not open until the day after the job fair.
