TCHS Senior Field Trip Opportunity - Career and Training Fair

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Your child is invited to participate in the third annual Career and Training Fair on March 7, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., held at the Technical College High School Brandywine Campus in Downingtown, PA. TCHS Pickering will be providing transportation to and from Pickering Campus to the event. Students will not be permitted to drive themselves due to a lack of parking at the event. If your child is interested in attending this event, please fill out and return this permission slip by Thursday, February 14, 2019. Please click on the following link to access the permission slip, CTF Permission Slip

This event provides community employers the opportunity to meet graduating seniors from related industry programs. With all three campuses attending this year, we will likely have nearly 1000 students in attendance. Unlike other job fairs, we provide a personal one-to-one sit-down interview environment. Students are given interview materials and meals during the event. Last year, we had over 100 local companies and we are expecting an even larger turnout this year.

Students have been working on their Career and Training Fair Portfolio in program which includes a cover letter, a thank you letter, resume, career plan, community service document, job shadow review, and interview rubric. This portfolio will act as the TCHS graduation project for the 2019 senior class.

Seniors are expected to dress in professional attire and be prepared to find gainful employment and valuable interview experience. Some clothing items are available through our "Dress for Success Program". If you know that your child may need assistance obtaining such items, please feel free to reach out to their program teacher.

 

If your child is a part-time AM student, parents must arrange transportation for your student(s) to be picked up at TCHS Pickering by 2:05 p.m.

 

If your child is a part-time PM student, parents must arrange transportation for your student(s) to arrive at TCHS Pickering by 7:45 a.m.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach Christine Koch, Erin Petters or Lea Scott at 610-933-8877.
