MOBOCES hosted its first CTE Career Fair on March 1 to connect CTE seniors with local employers and potential openings right in the Mohawk Valley.

CTE Outreach Coordinator Rachel Helmer spearheaded the new event. More than 30 area businesses, agencies and colleges sent representatives to talk with seniors about their industries, upcoming openings, post-secondary options and career preparation.

“The intent of this event was to allow our senior CTE students to explore careers they may be interested in after graduation,” Helmer said. “We want to show students that there are job opportunities to be found in our region and help employers connect with the future workforce.”

The senior class was divided into three groups, with each group having about half an hour to visit tables in their chosen fields. Several of the industry representatives were themselves MOBOCES alumni.
