The Edmonds School District sponsored an Employment Fair in April of 2017 and 2018. It was cancelled due to the school closure in 2019. We hope to have a fair in April of 2020. We host more than 30 local businesses who have openings for part-time, summer, and full-time entry level positions.
Students should come prepared with their resumes or cover letter, as well as an "elevator pitch" to introduce themselves to potential employers.

Companies have included: Fred Meyer, QFC, Panera Bread, O'Reilly Auto Parts, City of Mountlake Terrace, Pedalheads Bike Camp, Nordstrom, Red Onion Burger, Taco Bell, AMC Theatres and more.
