(ACORN) A Job Fair was held on Tuesday at the Acorn High School Gym, in which over 50 area businesses and organizations gathered, presented by the Ouachita River School District.
Those presenting job opportunities were varied and offered the Acorn and Oden High School students attending multiple choices in careers. The booths ranged from State Parks, to a massage therapy school, automotive, retail and many others.
Ouachita River School District Career Coach, Tammy Young said, “This is a great opportunity for these young men and women to not only see who employers in the area are, but to have the chance to ask Human Resources people questions that may help them in their lives ahead.”
After the job fair had concluded a Q&A panel discussion was held where students could ask more questions related to hiring, such as how to dress for interviews, questions to ask and how to respond to questions from potential employers.
