Highlands 8th Grade Career Fair

The School Districts from Clay, Jackson, Overton, Putnam, Warren, and White Counties are partnering with the Highlands Workforce Development and Education to offer a Student Job Fair. The Academic Career Coaches will be training high school seniors through the Career Technical Education (CTE) departments, in an extensive “Interview Boot Camp” program designed to teach soft skills employers expect their employees to possess.  Students successfully completing the program receive a certificate and become eligible for a pre-screening discussion/interview at a Job Fair for a potential in depth employer interview at a future date. The most talented students will come to the Leslie Town Centre to meet employers from the Upper Cumberland on April 19, 2016.  We are asking for your participation to interview the students and share tips that will put them on the path for future employment either part-time, full-time or seasonal employment. The ultimate goal is to provide you with a better prepared workforce. We need your participation for this event to be successful and for the future employee base to be well on the way to meeting your needs. A morning session will be held at 9:00-11:00 a.m. Clay, Jackson, Overton, and White County students. Lunch will be provided before the afternoon session scheduled to be held 12:00-2:00 p.m. for Warren and Putnam County students.  Please complete the attached registration form to participate in the Job Fair.

We look forward to your participation!
