April Job Fair a First for Fremd High School Cooperative Work Training Students

While District 211 continues to focus on making students college and career ready by the time they graduate, Fremd High School is taking a step further for some of its students when it comes to finding jobs.

Fremd High School is preparing for its first job fair for junior and senior students enrolled in the Cooperative Work Training (CWT) program. The event is scheduled for April 15 during the regular school day. This job fair will provide students enrolled in CWT with the opportunity to meet representatives from community businesses in the retail, service, and food services industries and participate in five-minute interviews.

In preparation for this event, CWT students will learn about general employment skills and interview skills, including the development of cover letters and resumes, the completion of job applications, preparing for interviews and how to conduct and represent themselves during interviews. This event is a great opportunity for students to make a name for themselves amongst community businesses and opportunity for community businesses to recruit FHS students for potential employment

The CWT program is for students 16 years old or older who want to develop job-entry skills that increase their opportunities for rewarding careers. Classroom instruction focuses on strengthening communication, mathematics, and work-related skills, developing good work attitudes, and providing background knowledge for careers. Activities also coordinate with on-the-job experiences to develop skills that enable a student to be successful in any career. Training stations are chosen in an effort to match a student’s ability and interest with an appropriate position.
