There’s been a ton of discussion in Mill Valley and across the country in recent years about how hard it has been for businesses to bring back their employees and hire new ones.
Despite an unemployment rate of just above 2% here in Mill Valley, the job boards for the 94941 are loaded with postings, primarily for service industry jobs, spanning grocery store, cafe and retail clerks to salon, pet care and real estate office receptionists. As with most issues, the real reasons employers are struggling to fill openings are complex.
The Youth Job Fair is here to directly address this gap head-on, with a specific wrinkle for employers: the ability to submit your specific job openings whether or not you intend to be an exhibitor at the event itself. This allows job seekers to get a sense of the available opportunities before they arrive on site.
Job Seekers: Register to attend in advance here.
