Coe-Brown has been experimenting with new activities for the past few years. The Career Fair is one of those experiments that they’ve been working on. It’s been two years since Coe-Brown started to host the Career Fair and this year it was better than ever. The Fair was hosted on September 11 and happened between 8:30-10:10 Am.
The Career Fair has become an annual event at Coe-Brown and every year it gets bigger and bigger. “Every year we try to get more unknown jobs out there and show the students that would otherwise not know of their existence,”Co-organizer Ms.Cox. “There were people from sheriffs and members of the Navy, to folks working in agriculture and architecture”.
This year’s sophomores were allowed to attend the fair with the juniors and seniors. “We wanted to start introducing them early to these job opportunities, so that’s why we allowed the sophomores to come,” Co-organizer Mr. Bassett said. When asked if they would allow freshmen next year they had this to say: “We have thought of it before and maybe we will do it next year,” Ms. Cox said.
The fair lasted from 8:30-10:10 and was more successful than last year. When asked if they would host it next year they responded, “Oh yeah definitely,” said Co-organizers Mr. Basset and Ms. Cox. There are already plans for next year’s Career Fair.
