“All of our Lake County business people will be sharing their career advice as well. We’re grateful for the strong support this event receives from the Leadville community; it’s incredible,” said Carol Glenn, the Career Fair Chairman.
The Fair begins at 8 a.m. at Lake County High School and is offered to LCHS students as well as students from surrounding high schools and Lake County Middle School students. The format allows students to spend approximately 50 minutes in their areas of interest where they can interact with a variety of presenters and get a chance to ask questions. Over 90 presenters are expected to attend. The Career Fair presentations will be done not only by business people from Lake County and surrounding areas but also by professionals from other parts of the state.
“The point is to give students as many chances to ask questions and explore possibilities in a healthy and safe environment,” said Bob Deister, a community volunteer for the Career Fair. “And, we hope that by exposing the students to a new range of choices and dreams, they will also bring new questions and focus to their current education.”
The Lions Club and the School to Career Partnership have designed the Career Fair to be part of an overall effort to expose students to career options and to raise their aspirations.
