Marsh Harbour, The Bahamas — High school kids from all over Abaco participated in this year’s successful fair. Positions and employers from many fields and careers were well-represented; each with a booth set up to talk to, and educate, the kids.
The entire room was filled with stands operated by managers and employees who donated time from their schedules to be present. The interest they showed in these young entrepreneurs and workers will pay dividends over the next few years.
Education was a key factor of the career fair. Besides employers describing their fields, there were also several sessions of mock interviews taking place helping kids understand what it takes to pursue a job of their dreams.
Going into the week remember to thank the business owners and volunteers who made this fair possible. Helping the next generation of Bahamian movers-and-shakers is critical to our society’s continued success.
