Career Builders counter recruitment was on the job Tuesday, 9/13/16, at the Chico High School “Career Fair”. We talked to so many students and parents it might have been our best event yet. Thanks to Sue G. and Sue M. from the Ridge Coalition for Peace & Justice for their help in lining up our table at the event and bringing their Career Builder stand up exhibit and so many brochures. They brought the “Opt Out” forms that many took advantage of and many other hand outs that sparked some great discussions.
We had a table (not far from several military recruiters) and all three of us were busy talking to high school seniors and their parents probably 70% of the time from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
We had six stand up exhibits, we set up in a corner spot, by an exit, that turned out to have a lot of traffic. Many of the people who stopped by our table expressed gratitude to us for our being there. As we left a woman walked by and said, “Thank you guys so much for being here and sharing your information.” We got the feeling that we were doing a good thing.
