You may be still deciding what you might like to do with your life. All students go through the process which may include continuing on to college or seeking a trade right out of high school.

The purpose of this Fair is to give you the opportunity to talk to area businesses and see the types of job that they have and find out what type of schooling or training you need to compete for them.

This is your opportunity to make the most out of the Job & Career Fair. It can help you with your decision about working in a field that you would enjoy.
