  • A chance for students to network with school and district personnel by presenting themselves professionally and handing out their resumes.
  • Opportunity for representatives to talk about their schools and districts.
  • A great way for students to ask questions about careers and job opportunities.
  • Graduating students and graduates should consider attending both fairs!
