The New Hampton students in Iowa BIG North took hold of a proposed idea to host a career fair and then took the necessary steps to make it happen, from planning to the actual event. They attended sector board meetings to bring forward their ideas about how the event could be carried out best and worked with their Career Learning Link Coach from NICC throughout the coordination to make sure the event was a success.
Throughout the month prior to the event, the students were prepped with their teachers on proper interview etiquette, how to research the businesses attending that they were most interested in, and they also generated questions to ask businesses during the networking fair.
The students who helped plan the event got a lot of positive feedback from businesses, fellow students, and their teachers.
