For the third year, the school will be hosting its job fair Thursday in the LRC for students 16 and over.

“My goal every job fair is to connect as many students with community employers as possible,” job fair host Anne Dragosh said.

Employers will be hiring from 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Students will need to get a pass from a teacher or their counselor to attend.

“I recommend students take care of this in the days leading up to the fair and not wait until the day of the event,” Dragosh said.

Jewel Foods, Buck Services, District 33 after school program (Breaking Free), Classic Cinemas, Monarch Landing Retirement Community, and Wyndemere Retirement Community are looking to hire.

“Each employer is looking for different things in terms of hours and availability. Students will need to discuss their availability with each employer,” Dragosh said.

Representatives from the Army and Marine Corps will also be at the job fair for students interested in future opportunities in the armed forces.

“For students not necessarily looking for a job, it is an opportunity to learn about a few different jobs available in the community and a means to make connections with a potential future boss,” Dragosh said.

Dragosh recommends students to dress nicely and have a good first impression.

“(If students need help at the job fair) myself, special education teachers Brigitte Debs and Penny Munoz will be in attendance all day,” Dragosh said.

The job fair takes place twice a year, one is held in the fall and one in the spring.

“My hope is to see the fair grow. Last year’s spring job fair was our largest fair at over 350 students,” Dragosh said. “That was a bit over fifteen percent of our students which is a nice attendance rate.”
