Come to the "Careers In" Career Fair Wednesday

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

There’s more than one way to become a rock star. It all starts with having a dream and connecting the dots to a future career.

You never know what small moment will trigger a student’s interest in something that will become their passion.

One way to stimulate interest in a career is to talk with professionals about their work life.

A career fair aimed at students from 5th through 12th grade has been scheduled for Wednesday, March 21 from to at Cajon Park Elementary School, 10300 N. Magnolia Ave.

Local businesses and experts will be present to explain what their careers can offer. Parents and kids are welcome to drop by. No RSVP or reservations are required.

It’s one of three events organized by Careers In, a local effort launched in partnership with the Santee Teen Center, Santee Chamber of Commerce and Santee Community Collaborative to get young people thinking about potential careers here in East County.

Chamber leaders figure that a well-trained and motivated local workforce is an asset for a city that wants to attract new businesses.

"The idea is to create a generation of people who are educated and prepared, which could attract companies to move here," said  John Olsen, Santee Chamber of Commerce Executive Director .

"We also hope that by introducing kids to different types of careers, they will carry that over to their studies and get fired up about school," he added.
