Delavan-Darien High School was once again the host site of the Wisconsin Education Fair and a school Career Fair on Tuesday, Oct. 1.
DDHS juniors and seniors, along with several thousand upperclassmen from other area high schools, were able to obtain information from more than 100 different post-secondary institutions, including universities, two-year colleges, military recruiters and others.
Representatives from Wisconsin and out-of state colleges and universities, vocational schools, trade schools, and the military were present to talk about the many educational opportunities available to students after graduation.
Students were able to move about the gymnasium and meet with as many representatives as they chose. They could also pick up literature and information from the many participants at one centralized location.
DDHS juniors and seniors also had the opportunity to meet with about 20 individuals representing various careers, including hospitality, parks and recreation, law enforcement, automotive, financial planning, realty, welding, teaching, media, lawyers, nursing, business management and more.
The keynote speaker for the DDHS Career Fair was Rick Heine, who manages business services for the Walworth County Job Center. He spoke to juniors and seniors about interviewing skills, preparing resumes, conducting job searches and becoming employable for whenever students seek work.
