  • On April 5th, DCPS partnered with JAXUSA and CareerSource to host the 2nd Annual Employment Fair.  Students from across the district interfaced with nearly 85+ companies and military branches to learn about potential employment opportunities and job openings.  Many students got job offers!  One segment of the event featured a breakout session with Travis Pickney of College and Career RED to help energize students prior to meeting with employers.  He really got the students amped up and motivated!

    A tremendous shoutout to Westside High School.  They went above and beyond for their students.  Staff at Westside had a professional clothing drive, offered resume writing workshops, and hosted prep sessions prior to the event to ensure their students were well-prepared to meet a future employer. Their confidence level projected loudly as they entered the building.  Eighty plus strong in attendance, they were on a mission to succeed, and they did.  Way to go!

    Thanks to everyone who participated in this amazing event for our students.
