DOWNINGTOWN >> Nearly 800 stu­dents from all three Ch­ester County Tech­ni­cal Col­lege High Schools (TCHS) are ex­pected to at­tend the third an­nual Ca­reer & Train­ing Fair on Thurs­day, March 7 at TCHS Brandy­wine Cam­pus in Downingtown.

The Ca­reer and Train­ing Fair of­fers a unique op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal busi­ness and in­dus­try part­ners to in­ter­view TCHS stu­dents in their fi­nal year of high school. Last year’s event had over 107 busi­ness and in­dus­try part­ners in at­ten­dance and many stu­dents walked away with job of­fers or fur­ther in­ter­view op­por­tu­ni­ties.

One of the hall­marks of the Ca­reer & Train­ing Fair is that busi­ness and in­dus­try part­ners re­ceive a rubric to help eval­u­ate a stu­dent’s strengths and weak­nesses through­out the in­ter­view process.

Stu­dents then re­ceive feed­back af­ter the event which al­lows them to strengthen their in­ter­view skills. For each com­pleted in­ter­view, stu­dents re­ceive a raf­fle ticket that they can use to en­ter a draw­ing to win a do­nated prize.

A fea­ture of the Ca­reer & Train­ing Fair is the “Dress for Suc­cess” pro­gram. “Dress for Suc­cess” is a pro­gram that seeks to pro­vide stu­dents with pro­fes­sional at­tire who might not have ac­cess to it oth­er­wise. Stu­dents are able to keep their out­fits to en­sure that they will have pro­fes­sional at­tire once they grad­u­ate from TCHS. Last year, over 175 stu­dents were served by the “Dress for Suc­cess” pro­gram.

There are still spots avail­able for busi­ness and in­dus­try part­ners in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing in this event. For more in­for­ma­tion about reg­is­tra­tion, please visit­gonline. com/2019tchs­bctf or con­tact Dr. Deb­o­rah Wat­son at Deb­o­[email protected]
