Josephine County College and Career Fair

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 8:45 AM to 12:30 PM

The 10th annual Josephine County College and Career Fair is just around the corner, held annually during the statewide PSAT testing day for all 10th graders. This year’s exact date for the fair is Wednesday October 10, 2018 from approximately 8:45 to 12:30 at GPHS. The local schools are invited and there are approximately 500-600 students from North Valley, Hidden Valley, Illinois Valley, Logos Charter and Rogue River High Schools that participate. All GPHS 9th, 11th, and 12th grades participate so approximately 1500 GPHS students. That’s over 2000 students you can reach at one event!

There are three options available for a business, college, and/or organization to participate:

One is to have a table in the gym or outside quad area where you can display information and interact with students. The students will come to you to ask questions regarding your business and/or organization such as “What type of careers are available? What are the entry level positions? What kind of education is needed?” etc. This is a good location to have handouts, prizes, games and fun ways to interact and intrigue a young person’s mind.

The second option is to have a classroom presentation with a computer and projector for students coming to you based on their interests. Typically, there are four 40-minute sessions with all of the students rotating to different areas of interest for each session. Students have an opportunity to visit four areas of interest and will have a worksheet to complete as they gather information from you and learn more about all the resources available to them within the local community. Unfortunately, we cannot usually accommodate companies in both the gym and a classroom, so you must choose one or the other.

A new third option available this year is a large group presentation in the 750 capacity performing arts center (PAC). This platform is intended for someone who can captivate the attention of a large group and motivate students for greatness in the future. You can choose to do one 40-minute presentation or possibly multiple times of the same presentation. If you are interested or have an idea of someone or a group that would be awesome for this venue, please contact me right away as I only have up to 4 slots available total for the day.
