It is so exciting . . . the boom in Career Fairs at local high schools allow students to discover local career opportunities and area businesses to meet the future workforce.
Each fair seems to offer its own twist as they try to provide students with the best experience and use of school time.
I can see how we might all work together to create a Career Fair Best Practices guide to combine all of our efforts to produce a Career Fair Superpower for our area.
Kudos to the variety and volume of business and education opportunities made available in St. Louis on November 20. But! My overall favorite thing was what you did in the Media Center.
A panel of guests, all St. Louis High School graduates, met in front of students to share what worked and didn’t work for them while they were in high school. They shared their “then and now” character traits and values that have made them feel successful at work and in life! It was very powerful coming from these young people and businesses would be proud and many surprised to hear them reflect the same traits and values you have been sharing with myself, each other, and educators over the past two years. VERY WELL DONE Andrea Biehl, Terri Reeves, and Erin Busch-Grabmeyer.
