First-ever District-wide Job Fair

Students at Savannah High School had a lesson in landing a job today. The first-ever district-wide job fair gave teens a chance to see what job-seeking is really like. More than 30 businesses with more than 100 positions to offer set up to make their pitch to students.

This wasn't an ordinary job fair. Students had to apply and be selected to attend. "They had to practice interviews, follow a dress code, and teachers selected the best candidates who had to apply for the opportunity to come," explained Barbara Foley with the Learning for Life program.

Learning for Fife and Jobs Unlimited put on the job fair in conjunction with the Boy Scouts of America.
