Teens who want to pick up a summer job or even start working part-time after school and on the weekends, now have the opportunity to see what employment opportunities are available in the Grand Strand without even leaving their classrooms.
For the second year in a row, the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Horry County Schools to offer students a virtual job fair on Monday, April 19, 2021.
High school students throughout the county will be allowed to take a break from class to learn a new skill ... how to apply for a job. The students will visit an online job bank provided by the chamber and easily apply for a variety of available positions, especially within the hospitality and tourism industry.
MBACC Vice President of Business Development Cindy Gettig said the students will find a large mix of various jobs available from numerous employers across the Strand, all of whom are seeking young adults to fill positions.
Picking up a summer or part-time job allows teens to not only earn money but learn valuable skills that will help them throughout their lives, according to Gettig, who especially noted that hospitality jobs teach young employees critical skills such as customer service, relationship building, teamwork, problem-solving, sales and more.
Here in South Carolina, those 16 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, which is opening the door to more teens getting into the workforce, Gettig noted.
For more information on the job fair, students can contact their school administration or visit MBACC’s online Job Bank. The website also offers a Career Tool Kit with additional resources for teens seeking employment.
