WorkNet Pinellas is hosting a virtual job fair. It's going on until May 26 and it's focusing on young people.

They're calling it 'Tampa Bay's Virtual Job Fair."  WorkNet Pinellas and its partners are giving employers an opportunity to post their job openings online for part-time, full-time, and summer internship positions for people ages 14 to 24.

It's free and since it's virtual that means applicants can stay in their pajamas while submitting their resumes.

There are more than 200 job openings and more than 1000 applicants registered. Some employers include Suntrust Bank, Universal Health Care, and Bonefish Grill.

WorkNet Pinellas CEO Ed Peachey says, "Putting young people to work is one of the most important things WorkNet Pinellas can do to help young people get on the right track for a productive career."
