MELROSE — Superintendent Cyndy Taymore is pleased to announce that Melrose High School and the Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School will host a career fair for students next month, and this year the goal is to make it the “biggest ever” career fair held in Melrose.
Thursday, March 3 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
MVMMS cafeteria, 350 Lynn Fells Parkway
The fair will be held for middle school and high school students. This event is designed to give teens an opportunity to learn more about career fields and the opportunities available to them before and after graduation.
Numerous professionals will be present and available to speak with students about their careers, including representatives in nursing, civil engineering, clinical psychology, biology, law enforcement, community planning, mechanical engineering, finance, real estate, chemistry, aviation, hospitality, law, accounting, environmental science, neuropsychology, cosmetology, business, plumbing, music, athletic coaching, dental, cancer research and education.
“This is a great opportunity for middle school students to explore potential career opportunities prior to entering high school and college,” said MVMMS Principal Brent Conway. “This is a no pressure event that’s designed to help students navigate through the rest of their time in the Melrose Public Schools with a clearer vision of what they’d like to do in the future.”
MHS students are encouraged to bring their resumes for possible internship opportunities.
“High school can often be a stressful time for students, who are in the beginning stages of figuring out which career path to embark on before graduation,” said MHS Principal Marianne Farrell. “We want to make this process as seamless as possible by giving students the opportunity to learn more about potential fields of interest, and in some cases, earn a chance to work for a company in their career choice.”
The career fair was made possible by the MHS Guidance Department and STEM Club. School officials would like to thank the Bridge Program and MHS Site Council for their contributions.
