Fremd High School is preparing for its first job fair for junior and senior students enrolled in the Cooperative Work Training program.

The event is scheduled for Monday, 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 among community businesses and an opportunity for community businesses to recruit Fremd 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.
