Teens in grades nine to 12 who are interested in finding part-time work are invited to “Get Hired.”

The event will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8 at the Central Learning Center, 200 SW Fourth St. in Forest Lake.

Learn how to look for openings, research companies, interview, understand dress codes and body language and keep a job after being hired.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions and to talk with local employers about what they look for in young employees.

There is no fee to attend, but pre-registration is required.  Visit www.ysblakesarea.org  or www.community-ed4u.org to print a registration form.
