Two Weeks Remain for Othello Employers to Register: 1st Annual Career Showcase - 09/19/17

OTHELLO, WA -- Othello School District is partnering with the Adams County Development Council to host its 1st Annual Career Showcase on Thursday, October 12 from 7:45 AM to 3:30 PM in the Othello High School gymnasium. Employers in the Othello area are encouraged to register by September 29 to host a FREE booth at this year's fair.

The 2017 career fair has a STEAM theme, focusing on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. As students browse exhibitor booths, they will learn more about local companies and job opportunities, what high-tech and highly-skilled career fields are available, and begin establishing relationships with future employers. Participating employers will have the opportunity to interact with nearly 1,500 students from grades 9-12 in Othello High School.

Amy Parris, Othello School District Director of School to Career, has been working to connect the District to the Othello Industry Council, which is charged with populating the local workforce from entry level to managerial jobs.

"One of the first ideas from the council was to find a way to expose our middle and high school students in Othello to the local industries," Parris states. "After more than eight months in planning, the OIC and Othello School District partnership has resulted in this showcase."

Registration for the Othello Career Showcase is due by Friday, September 29 and may be mailed to the Adams County Development Council at 425 E. Main St., Ste. 300, Othello, WA 99344. Registration forms may also be submitted via email to stephenm@co.adams.wa.us. (See attached form.)

For more information about the career showcase, contact Amy Parris at 509.488.3351 Ext. 1030.
