hosting a job fair on Wednesday, April 15th

The Job Fair will provide our students the opportunity to get hands on training as they prepare and participate in the activities. Students are learning what to do before, during, and after a job fair. Also, students are practicing how to make a GREAT FIRST IMPRESSION!

We would like to ask for your help as we prepare our students to participate during the job fair. Please help them DRESS FOR SUCCESS! Students need to have a professional appearance and dress professional on Wednesday, April 15th. Clothing should be washed and pressed. Students can wear khaki’s and a collared shirt. Also, students need to be clean, use deodorant, and be well-groomed. If you need any help with this, please call Ms. Eastridge at 317-988-7251.
