Volunteers Wanted to Represent Materials Engineering at High School Career Fair
An event called the, "Career Exploration Fair" will be held on Saturday, February 28th from 10:00am - 2:00pm at Handke Center in Elk River.
This event is different than what a person might think of as a typical "Career Fair" where job seekers are looking for jobs....for this Career Exploration Fair...we want to gather as many people from as many different Career Paths as we can - and have them on hand to talk 1:1 or in small groups about their career (schooling, licensure, certifications, what a typical day is like, etc.).
The Career Exploration Fair is going to be targeted and marketed to the region's High School students: Princeton, Zimmerman, Elk River, Rogers, Big Lake, Monticello, Becker, Buffalo, St. Michael-Albertville, Saint Francis, Osseo, and Anoka.
Our goal is to offer an opportunity for students to be exposed to dozens of different types of careers so that they can "get a taste" of what is out there, when starting to discern what it is they might like to do. (how do they know if they don't know many of the options??)
