Thirty-five employers set up shop in the main gym on April 10. Business teacher Laurie Phillip coordinated with all the companies involved in the event.
Phillip said she was hoping to make students aware of job opportunities as well as let students know who they need to reach out to. In addition, she wants to let the employers meet the people possibly applying for their positions.
“I was hoping to connect students with employers so that when students are ready to get their first jobs they know who to reach out to. So many employers are hiring right now it is great for them to see kids in person and speak with them about opportunities,” Phillip said.
Students are already seeing the benefits of the job fair. Freshman Adrianna Palazzola said she believes the job fair was advantageous and she is in contact with multiple employers she met at the event.
“The job fair was very beneficial. It was cool to see job opportunities and it helped me get an interview as a lifeguard at the YMCA,” Palazzola said.
