Washington and Lee Hosts Career Fair

Twenty-nine local businesses made their annual visit to the Washington and Lee High School Career Fair on March 13. The career fair is an attempt to familiarize students with the jobs that can be found locally in the area.  

Students were able to visit with each company and were encouraged to ask questions.  Among the topics discussed were how much education one needs to work there, how much training a new employee receives, what are the minimum requirements, what do the recruiters love about their job, what skills are required for employment, and what advice would they offer to a young person starting out?

Many of the businesses addressed the students’ sweet tooths, with treats being constantly scarfed down. The NSWC Federal Credit Union had their popular wheel of fortune which students spun for prizes, and the U.S. Marines brought their chin bar where young men and women tried to impress each other with their upper arm strength. The U.S. Army put students on the floor with earning tee shirts for pushups.

This event is as much fun for companies as it is for the students. Several of the participating companies commented upon the great questions the students asked and the interest they showed as they listened to the representatives. This year’s participating companies were Bank of Lancaster, Carry-On Trailers,  George Washington Birthplace National Monument, Haynesville Correctional Center, Mary Washington Health Care, Naval Surface Warfare Center/Dahlgren, Northern Neck Electric Cooperative, Northern Neck Technical Center, NSWC Federal Credit Union, Montross Rescue Squad, Rappahannock Community College, Rappahannock Region Small Business Development, Rappahannock General Hospital,  Stratford Hall, Union First Bank, U.S. Army , U.S. Marine Corp, Virginia Department of Forestry,  Virginia Employment, Virginia National Guard, Walmart, Westmoreland County Museum, Westmoreland County Public Schools, Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office, Westmoreland State Park, and Westmoreland County Social  Services.

 Washington and Lee High School staff and the Westmoreland County Public Schools thank the companies for making the effort to attend this career fair. Interested businesses who would like to participate in next year’s career fair may call Patty Long at the school board office, 804-493-8018.
