Some spent their time researching Wayne Community College and different branches of the military.
Others couldn’t wait to take their turn on a virtual reality device.
And in the end, discussions were had, laughs were shared, and, most importantly, information was obtained.
More than a dozen Goldsboro High School students joined some 350 Wayne County seniors Thursday at the Goldsboro Family YMCA to learn about their options after graduation.
According to a press release issued by Wayne County Public Schools, the annual career fair “helps participating students become more aware of potential career options available to them,” and “provides students a great opportunity to meet and talk with HR or recruiting representatives to learn about the qualifications employers are looking for.”
WCPS reported that twenty-five organizations were represented, and because of their efforts, WCPS Career and Technical Education Director Beverly Boltinhouse rated the event a success.
“The WCPS Career and Technical Education Program is passionate about helping bridge the gap between school and the workforce in order to help students be successful in the job place,” she said in a news release. “We appreciate all of the participating organizations who took part.”
