Brazosport College will co-host its 21th annual Career Fair on Tuesday, April 15.
Approximately 1,700 juniors from eight area high schools, both public and private, will have the opportunity to explore careers with representatives from a wide variety of career fields. The daylong event is a cooperative effort between the college, area school districts, business, industry and civic organizations to deliver career and educational information to high school students.
A variety of careers will be represented at the Career Fair. Students may visit with career professionals, attend breakout sessions and speak with college representatives about educational and training opportunities.
The Career Fair is modified on a yearly basis to respond to the needs of the community and the needs of the students. This year's focus is on addressing high demand jobs in southern Brazoria County. New breakout sessions include “Women in Industry” and “Engineer Your Future.” Students also may choose to attend a live demonstration from local contractors that present technical skills from various craft professions.
The students attending the Career Fair have the opportunity to enter an essay contest to compete for Brazosport College scholarships. Students interested in entering the scholarship contest should contact their high school counselor.
