Connect with local employers at the Battle Ground Public Schools’ Industry Fair

BATTLE GROUND — Students and community members are invited to learn about careers in southwest Washington at Battle Ground Public Schools’ Industry Fair at Battle Ground High School on Thu., Feb. 23, from 5-7 p.m.

Students and community members who attend the fair will be able to learn about career paths by talking with local employers about the jobs available at their companies.

There will also be a resume writing workshop from 3 to 6:30 p.m. in the school’s College and Career Center.

Many industries will be represented, including health science, manufacturing, technology, construction, finance, hospitality, retail, human services and transportation; and participants will have a chance to ask about the skills, abilities and educational requirements to work in various jobs, along with what the work environment is like and what kinds of tasks are performed in various job roles. Representatives from more than 50 businesses will be available to answer questions.

Community members are encouraged to attend an educational evening at Battle Ground High School about the many career opportunities in the region. Contact career guidance specialist Kevin Doyle at (360) 885-6598 or doyle.kevin@battlegroundps.org with questions.
