Potential employees packed the Governor's Summer Job Hunt Thursday in hopes of scoring a job that will put some cash in their pockets.
The Pikes Peak Workforce Center Youth Zone held the teen job fair Thursday, with employers who have summer positions for youth, 16 through 21.
Hundreds of teens packed the parking lot and the fair, scouring the tables, filling out applications and hoping to get hired!
The Pikes Peak Workforce Center Youth Zone says hiring young people lets employers train their future workers and helps youths learn about employers' expectations.
The job fair was open to employers in El Paso and Teller Counties who need to fill their summer part-time or full-time positions. It was held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Colorado Springs.
There was no charge for employers to attend.
