Manchester High School West is looking for some speakers to participate at a career fair on Thursday, April 12th.
As we all know, New Hampshire is facing a labor shortage. Our population is aging. Once our youth graduate from high school, many are electing to leave the state. The Young Professionals Committee of MAHRA (Manchester Area Human Resources Association) in conjunction with our state workforce readiness partners is taking affirmative steps to help link local schools and businesses by providing workforce readiness training to these students. The purpose of this is not only to prepare students for their future careers but to introduce them to the businesses in New Hampshire which increasingly have more job opportunities than qualified candidates.
They are in need of the following:
- 2 morning speakers (7:15 to 11:30 a.m.)
- 3 afternoon speakers (11:00 to 3:00 p.m.)
- 2 full day speakers (7:15 to 3:00 p.m.)
The career areas they need are:
- musician (top priority)
- dental assistant or dentist
- vet assistant or groomer
- secretary, receptionist or any other entry-level position
If you know of any professionals in these career areas that would be willing to volunteer to speak at the career fair, please contact the Young Professionals Committee.
