The Idaho Department of Labor will hold a special job fair for teens and young adults at Wahooz in Meridian on Saturday, according to a press release.

The job fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Galaxy Event Center at Wahooz, located at 1385 S. Blue Martin Lane. Employers from across the Treasure Valley have positions available for summer, including part-time and full-time jobs, such as recreation camp counselors, lifeguards, cashiers, social media content moderators, customer services specialists and more, according to the release.

The list of participating employers includes Roaring Springs/Wahooz, The Grove Hotel, Albertsons, the city of Meridian, Intermountain Pet Hospital, the U.S. Postal Service and others.

Job seekers should bring resumes and information necessary to fill out applications, and be ready to discuss related skills and qualifications, the release said. Attending a job fair event counts as one weekly valid work-search activity for unemployment insurance purposes.
