KHS JAG Career Fair

Go Back
Febuary 8, 2019

Dear Community Member,

The KHS JAG program, with assistance from the 2018 Leadership Kennett Class, would like to cordially invite you to participate in the 2nd Annual Career Fair on Friday, February 8th from 12:20 – 2:30 pm at the Kennett High School.

The goal is to have at least 90 different speakers from a large variety of career fields, as well as from different levels of employment within each of those career fields.

The Career Fair will give High School Students an opportunity to hear about different careers and assist the students in choosing a career for their future. Each speaker will have 15 minutes to discuss their career and answer questions from the students regarding their career. Below are a few typical discussions we would like for you to offer:

• Give a brief back ground about yourself
• Discuss what inspired you to enter your career of choice
• Discuss your education level and skill required for your position
• Discuss work hours, benefits available to you, salary ranges for your position, and any other information pertinent to your job

You will be able to set up a table, presentation, or visual aids for your presentation. Sometimes it is difficult to keep the attention of teenagers, so you are encouraged to discuss topics that will inspire questions from the students. If your business has any small giveaway items, you may want to bring those as well. You could either give something to every student, or just bring a few as “rewards” for students who either ask you questions or who answer questions that you might ask of them.

Each speaker will be talking to two different groups of students. Each group will consist of about 20 to 30 students.

We hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our young adults by participating in this years’ event. Please RSVP by Friday, January 11, 2019, by contacting any of the following individuals:
