CSAS Seeks Companies For Career Fair March 11

Thursday, January 13, 2022

CSAS announces their Career Fair to be held March 11 from 1-3:45 p.m.

"With the Chattanooga economy continuing to thrive, this Career Fair is extremely important," officials said. "We need to show students how this community is becoming the blueprint for the nation in terms of redeveloping its financial structure.  I want to personally challenge you and your company to enlighten our students about the importance of education and the benefits in/around the Chattanooga area by taking an active role in this fair. Regardless of your career field, we want our kids to hear about it. 

"With the rapidly changing job market and current economy, students need to begin planning their education and career choices now.  Our guidance office designates March as Career Awareness Month in an attempt to jumpstart this process while providing answers to career oriented questions. 

"We begin by interpreting eighth and 11th graders YouScience and ASVAB results. These tools identify each student’s area of interest and matches those interests to a career, college, internships and scholarships while evaluating their academic progress. 

"Finally, we sponsor a Career Fair so students can explore a variety of occupations with people who are currently in that field.  We need as many companies as possible to volunteer for three hours on March 11.  The career fair will be held in the main gym from 1-3:45 p.m., with lunch provided.  Companies and entrepreneurs can set up booths or tables to provide information about their career and/or place of employment." 

If you are interested in volunteering (CSAS parents receive eight volunteer hours), call Ms. Walton at 498-6845 or email @ walton_r@hcde.org to reserve your spot or receive a registration form and fax it to Ms. Walton @ 209-5831.
