Discover Your Future - Job Fair for Workforce Development
FABA is excited to help promote and participate in the inaugural “Discover Your Future” Event! We invite all FABA members to participate in this amazing event.
In an effort to serve thousands of students and community members from across the Fredericksburg region, this Regional Job Fair/Workforce Career Exploration event will span two days… October 9 and October 10 (with set up on October 8).
Discover Your Future will take place at the Fredericksburg Expo Center in Central Park and will help to connect the future workforce of our community to local businesses in different ways:
Career Exploration: During the school day on October 9th and 10th, eighth grade students from the partnering counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George, and Caroline, along with the City of Fredericksburg will be attending to learn more about the career opportunities available in this region. We ask that each participating business provide an interactive display to highlight and promote what your business does. Our goal for this event is to spark career interests...the more interactive and engaging your display can be...the better.
Career Preparation: During the school day on October 10, high school juniors and seniors from the partnering counties will participate in mock interviews with local business leaders and attend workforce readiness breakout sessions in the Expo Conference Center.. Additionally, we are seeking businesses to provide a representative to participate in the mock interviews. These students will also have the opportunity to visit the expo event to learn more about your business.
Career Commitment: From 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., high school and college students, and the general public will be invited to attend a job fair to provide you an opportunity to meet with prospective employees to help fill your immediate workforce needs.
