Nearly 800 Students Expected to Attend the Third Annual TCHS Career & Training Fair on March 7

Downingtown, PA – 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 & 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 visit www.regonline.com/2019tchsbctf or contact Dr. Deborah Watson at DeborahWa@cciu.org.
