Pulaski High School's Exploring Business class is hosting a Career Fair on Friday, March 22nd from 3:00-5:00. There will be 25 employers from the surrounding area that will be providing information about their business and will be handing out job applications. Last year was the first year that this event was held. We encourage students to bring resumes to provide to the employers. You can fill out an application on the spot! Open to any student, but obviously those who will benefit most are juniors and seniors. Whether students end up being hired or not, it is a good experience to have to introduce yourself, ask and answer questions, and converse with adult employers.
The event will be held in the Pulaski High School Cafeteria.
