LOUISVILE, KY (WAVE)– A jobs initiative from Mayor Greg Fischer is searching for 18 to 21 year olds who would like a summer job.
Called the Mayor's SummerWorks Program, the initiative is a link between young people and available positions across Kentuckiana. There are currently warehouse jobs open. To apply, one must first be registered with SummerWorks.
Young adults can register and apply on Tuesday, May 14, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the KentuckianaWorks Youth Career Center, 510 W. Broadway, Suite 701, in Louisville. After registration, staff will be available to help the new registrants apply online for the available positions.
"We're excited to be able to offer these jobs, perhaps a first job for a young person, one that will propel them in the right direction for the rest of their lives," said Mayor Greg Fischer. "That's what our SummerWorks jobs initiative is all about."
Young adults interested in registering for the program and applying for these jobs should call (502) 574-4727 to get an appointment.
Available jobs include pickers and packers, press operators, forklift operators, distribution associates, and loading and unloading trucks. Jobs are with eight employers in Jefferson and Bullitt counties and many of them start immediately.
These jobs are open to young adults who:
Are between the ages of 18-21
Have a GED or high school diploma
Are able to walk and stand for prolonged periods of time
Can lift at least 30-50 pounds for prolonged periods of time
People must bring two forms of identification (driver's license and Social Security card) and copies of their resumes to the registration appointment. They should also dress professionally for an interview.
The Mayor's SummerWorks Program is led by KentuckianaWorks, Greater Louisville's Workforce Investment Board and an agency of Louisville Metro Government, in partnership with Jefferson County Public Schools Adult and Continuing Education through the KentuckianaWorks Youth Career Center.
If young people miss this opportunity, there will be more throughout the summer.
