Ocean City High School will be hosting its first Virtual Job Fair next month and is in search of local businesses to participate.
The decision to implement this as a virtual opportunity was made to maintain the safety standards set forth by the Cape May County Department of Health, according to a school news release.
Event organizers and staff believe this platform is the most effective way to allow students and employers to connect for summer/seasonal employment safely, the release stated.
The job fair will be livestreamed between 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.Wednesday, April 14.
The goal for this event is to enable businesses to interact with students, post their applications, links, website information, among other important items.
It is also described as an opportunity for students to develop career-readiness skills, develop their resume and gain fiscal responsibility and independence.
These skills are directly aligned with the career readiness, life literacies, and key skill standards set forth by the New Jersey Department of Education.
Students will begin to prepare for the job fair in the days leading up to the event by determining what employers/positions they are interested in applying to, as well as updating or creating their personal resume.
Students will receive a list of businesses about a week prior to the event.
The event is free to business participants who sign up in the online forum, Booth Central.
