LUBBOCK, Texas -

With the school year winding down, students are trying to find their summer jobs. Workforce Solutions South Plains hosted it's Jobs Y'all Youth Career Exploration & Hiring Event.

Teens met with more than 30 employers and filled out job applications on the spot.

"Our unemployment rate is between 3.1 and 3.2 most of the time. In this month it's 3.1 and if you think that 2 percent is zero unemployment because it's a transient rate about 2-percent, you've only got one person left that's looking for a job for all these openings that we see," Martin Aguirre, CEO of Workforce Solutions South Plains, said.

The job-seekers even got some resume help. Businesses and organizations were on hand to hire and visit with students about career choices.
