Career Fair Success!

Career Fair Success!

On Friday, May 17th, OLHMS hosted its second Career Fair! OLHMS counselors Mrs. Vanessa Follmar and Ms. Colleen Hoeksema created the Career Fair for all OLHMS students. There were over 55 different professions representing careers, such as an Architect, Judge/Trial Lawyer, K9 Handler, Plumber, Civil Engineer, FDA Compliance Officer, Police Officer, Pharmacist, Fireman, Hair Stylist Educators, Therapist, IT Specialist, Lawyer, Realtor, Truck Driver, and many more. 

During the Career Fair, the main gym was set up for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students to explore the various careers during their encore classes. To help prepare students for the Career Fair, they were given a handout containing a floor map of where specific professions were located, a list of professions, example questions to ask professionals, and a reflection paper.

When Madison was asked about the Career Fair, she said “The Career Fair was such an amazing day! It was so cool to see so many different professions and to learn from so many different professionals.” Thank you to all the professionals for taking the time to talk with our students, and to Mrs. Farnan, Mrs. Follmar and Ms. Hoeksema for creating the Career Fair!
