Convention Center hosts Rotary Career Fair

It’s the time of the year again for sophomores to sign up for the Rotary Career Fair.

Students should have completed a survey during their English class online.

Students who decide to attend the career fair will also be required to fill out a parent permission form. That form must be filled out and returned in order to go to the career fair.

Students will be attending the afternoon session. They will leave around 11:30 a.m. and return by 2:30 p.m..

The career fair is Apr. 26. It is at the Blair County Convention Center.

There are over 80 career options at the career fair, including military representatives, secret service agents, chefs, engineers and many other careers.

Students have 20 minutes to talk to each career representative and learn about the career.  Attendees will learn about what the career is like, what they do everyday, how much they get paid and the education requirements.

Students will then have a chance to ask questions.

“The career fair helps increase awareness about what is out there, what potential careers that students may have an interest in, it can even be something they learn about a career they may have not known before, more exploration, and just more exposure to the world that is out there,” counseling chairperson Drew Yingling said.

According to Yingling, student feedback from the career fair is mostly positive. Students find the fair really helpful. It is a great opportunity to talk to people in that particular job.
