A combination of colleges, local businesses and other entities set up booths, offering students a chance to learn about job opportunities, internships, and volunteer work in various fields including retail, restaurant, vocational, real estate, and more.
The event was open to all high school students and provided an opportunity for them to explore different career options, network with potential employers, and gain information about the job market.
“We were very impressed by the enthusiasm and professionalism of the students who attended the job fair,” North Bergen Superintendent of Schools Dr. George Solter said in a statement.
“It was a great opportunity to connect businesses with young talent and I look forward to seeing our students hired by some of these employers in the future.”
During the job fair, students had the opportunity to speak with representatives from each business and learn about their company culture, job requirements, and potential career paths.
The job fair was organized by the North Bergen High School Guidance Department with the support of the school’s administration, staff, and local community members including the North Bergen Police Department and Parking Authority.
“We are thrilled to have hosted such a successful job fair for our students. The Guidance Department takes pride in providing opportunities for our students to explore different careers and meet potential employers because it is a crucial step in their academic and professional development,” added Theresa Rabelo, the director of student personnel services.
