Career Fest 2015
The school gymnasium of Toombs County High School was transformed into a mock movie theater on April 16th during the school’s annual career fair. “Now Showing – Career Fest 2015” was projected on a marquee over the main entrance to the gym. Numerous industries, colleges, businesses and branches of the armed services were represented at the event. Popcorn and prizes were also a part of the fair.
Students in grades 9 through 12 participated in a day of career exploration and had the opportunity to meet with nearly 60 professionals who are currently working in dozens of fields and industries and find out how high school courses relate to the skills needed for future jobs. Representatives from local educational agencies were also on hand to discuss training and diplomas offered by these educational institutions.
Some of the professionals who participated in the career fair include GBI special agents, cosmetologists, truck drivers, bankers, photographers, nurses, computer programmers, welders, and engineers. There were employees from a local cable company, an investment firm, public safety officers, military officers, and many more. Southeastern Technical College, Valdosta State University, Andrew College, College of Coastal Georgia, Darton College, Fort Valley State, Georgia Southwestern College, The Art Institute, Savannah State, Armstrong Atlantic University, Brewton Parker College, East Georgia College, Tulsa Welding School, and Lincoln College also sent representatives to the fair.
The purpose of the career exploration fair is to introduce high school students to the world of work. Bringing employers to exhibit at the school gave students a chance to meet new people, learn about careers they may never have considered before, and begin thinking about a career path. The exhibits helped students understand how careers and employers relate to each other.
The career fair was organized by Career Technical Instruction (CTI) Coordinator Sabrina Campbell. According to Campbell, the career fair was a success. "We appreciate the community participating and informing our students about job opportunities and the requirements for different occupations, providing insight into a variety of careers. Our career fair is an annual event that allows our students to meet with employers and representatives from educational institutions and get them excited about possible career paths and their future educational plans. Our fair keeps getting bigger and better each year.”
