College and Career Fairs

College fairs provide an opportunity for students to speak with a number of college representatives in a single location and an easy way to get on the mailing lists of colleges you select.  Watch this space for a link to "Getting the Most Out of a College Fair" as we approach dates for scheduled career fairs.

Career fairs provide an opportunity to learn about a career from people who are working in the career.  You can discover the good things about a career, how you can get started, what the career requires, and even things with which you might have to deal.
