Junior Achievement is hosting an event, Get Hired, which focuses on the skills necessary to get and keep a job. In addition to the company/vendor tables, students visit stations to learn various soft skills such as how to dress for success, job applications, elevator speech, financial crash course, and even mock interviews!
Ultimately, this day allows EVERY 8th grade student in Oak Ridge City Schools to communicate and interact with local industry professionals and gain a better understanding of their career interests, skills, and work priorities.
Industry representatives and volunteers are currently needed to host a table. You may share with students the different career fields that your company employs and the levels of education or training required for each job. You could bring examples of your product or something to represent your business. You may also have a separate "soft skills station", if you have enough employees to do both.
To get involved in this expo-style learning experience by setting up a table representing your company, please contact Sandy Longmire at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 865-203-6859.
Please note: Table space is limited and will be first come, first serve.
