2nd Annual New Hampton Career FairPosted: Tue, January 21, 2014
Join us for our 2nd Annual New Hampton Career Fair!
We would like to have your participation in the New Hampton Career Fair. The career fair will be held on Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at New Hampton High School gym. The career fair will run from 9-11 am; noon - 2 pm. You may begin setting up at 8 am. Please be there and setup by 9 am as that is when students will arrive. The high school will provide tables but you are welcome to bring any equipment/supplies you have of your own. We encourage each employer to bring a handout that has all the employment positions you have at your place of business and if there is any schooling/training needed to obtain these jobs. Attached are a couple examples.
Each class, 8th - 11th will have a scheduled time to attend the career fair. It will be mandatory that every student (325 students) attend. We have also invited Turkey Valley, Sumner-Fredericksburg, and Riceville high school students to join us. Students will be required to talk with 2-3 employers and fill out a worksheet about what they learned.
We would like to achieve the following:
o Give area businesses the opportunity to give an overview of what their business entails to students.
o Give area businesses the opportunity to recruit summer interns (if applicable)
o Give area businesses the opportunity to inform students of employment opportunities in New Hampton with a high school degree, 2 year degree, or 4 year degree
o Identify skills necessary for general employment and specific careers
o Identify education (high school/post secondary) necessary for general employment and specific careers
This is your opportunity to get students to return to New Hampton after graduating from college.
We think this would be a great opportunity for our students to see and hear about what the New Hampton Business Community has to offer.
Please let Megan or Tammy know by Friday, February 28, 2014 (at the phone number or email below) if you will be taking advantage of this opportunity!
