Thanks to collaboration between BCPS and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, approximately 1,500 students in the Career, Technical, Adult & Community Education program, recently got the opportunity to participate in a new career fair – the Claim Your Future Showcase. Students met representatives from 50 Alliance member companies at the BB&T Center in Sunrise.
Students explored a variety of career possibilities and learned about the skills needed to pursue their professional goals. Students attended panel discussions with C-level (high level) executives, participate in breakout sessions on the topics of resume writing, learn about business etiquette, and conduct mock interviews where they will receive one-on-one feedback from their executive interviewers. Participating companies will have a chance to meet and recruit summer interns.
