CedarBridge Set To Hold Vocational Career Fair

April 21, 2016

The Learning Support Department at CedarBridge Academy will hold its annual Vocational Career Fair on April 22.

With a theme of ‘Own Your Future,’ the event will take place at the CedarBridge Academy gymnasium from 9.00am to 1.00pm.

A spokesperson said, “The format for the Vocational Career Fair will allow students to explore career aspirations and assess their life-planning skills. It will also provide them with the invaluable opportunity to connect with potential mentors, internship possibilities, and work experiences related to their career goals.

“All CedarBridge Academy teachers are encouraged to heighten the importance of this career fair to all students, to encourage them to ask as many questions as possible, to speak well, and to talk to possible future employers with confidence.”

Tanya Simmons, the organizer of the vocational fair, said, “There are a few organizations that are open to accepting resumes for summer employment opportunities, therefore I would also encourage teachers to instruct students to have resumes on hand tomorrow morning.”

Customs, Impressions Hair/Nail & Barber Artistry, Maxilious Salon, Mid Ocean Club, Ministry of Public Works, Department of Parks, Noble Automotive, Reading Clinic, Royal Gazette, Smiles Inc, The Marketplace Limited, and Tomorrow’s Voices.”

    I suppose the parents of Cedarbridge well know that there is a career fair, how-ever it would be difficult for some parents to note what is on display and ask questions and lend support to their child if they only have an hour for lunch. No disrespect implied or intended, but do try to have career fairs to embrace those who cannot come during the 9 to 5 time frame.

      This is for the students not the parents. If you really wanted to attend, you’ll make a way.

      Further, students need to learn independence. During my high school years (10 years ago) my parents did not have to accompany me. They taught me responsibility…

      I understand your desire to attend with your child, but again….independence and responsibility is something I hope you can instill within your child.
