The future is looking bright for high school students across Knox County who attended KCEOC’s Career 3D Job Fair.
Held April 11 at Union College’s Robsion Arena, approximately 350 students from Barbourville Independent, Knox Central, Lynn Camp and Williamsburg Independent were in attendance. Representatives from local businesses were at the event to talk to students and answer any questions they had about their future careers and Knox County’s job market. Some of the careers represented at the job fair included medical, education and technical support.
When planning Career 3D, I wanted to ensure all activities were focused on one goal: offering students personal connections with employers, industry professionals, post-secondary educators, and community resources,” said Keith Greene, a KCEOC career advisor. “While walking around the venue, I got to witness students having these interactions; both professional and personal. Students were engaged in conversation and not just receiving information, which to me equals a successful Career 3D.”
