Connect with Employers at Battle Ground Industry Fair
Learn about career paths by talking with local employers about available job opportunities in southwest Washington at Battle Ground Public Schools’ Industry Fair on Thursday, February 20, 2020, at Battle Ground High School. Students and community members are invited to attend.
Come to the industry fair with your current resume or arrive early to participate in a resume writing workshop. The event will be held from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Battle Ground High School (300 W. Main St., Battle Ground). The resume writing workshop will be from 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM in the school’s College and Career Center.
More than 65 employers will be in attendance to discuss employment opportunities along with working conditions and special requirements. Employers from the health science, manufacturing, technology, construction, finance, hospitality, retail, human services, and transportation industries will be in attendance and many are hiring now. Just ask Angie Haas.
The southwest Washington native had been working as a para-educator in a nearby school district for the previous 12 years, but was seeking a new employment opportunity. After hearing about the Industry Fair, Haas and her husband David both decided to attend without knowing what to expect.
“My husband and I went in being open to new opportunities, but we didn’t know there were actual jobs available at the Industry Fair,” Haas said. “We were both looking for a change, and we were blown away by the number of companies represented there and how many of them were hiring.”
That day, Haas met with representatives from Sodexo, a food service company that contracts with Battle Ground Public Schools to provide nutrition services to district schools. She was encouraged to apply for an open position, and before she knew it, she had a job offer and would start in a matter of weeks.
“I would definitely recommend the Industry Fair to anyone who is interested in learning about job opportunities in our area,” Haas said. “It only took a few hours, and I was able to learn about all kinds of new opportunities and even found a job that matched my schedule. It simplified my job search, and I am grateful this opportunity is available right here in our own community.”
Join Battle Ground Public Schools for an educational evening to learn about the many career opportunities in our region. Please contact career guidance specialist Kevin Doyle at (360) 885-6598 or [email protected] with questions.
