Sponsored by the Western Chester County Chamber of Commerce, Exton Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce, the event brought together scores of potential employers and TCHS students for a series of interviews, professional portfolio reviews, and networking opportunities.
“It’s great for our students to have the opportunity to interview for a job or participate in a practice interview, depending on the respective company,” said Brian Hughes, Assistant Principal at the TCHS Pennock’s Bridge campus. “So it’s either a great real-world experience or great practice for an upcoming real-world experience.”
Erin Petters, Vice Principal at TCHS Pickering, has seen how successful the event has been, as each year students get offered summer internships, scholarships, and full-time jobs as a result of their attending the fair. Some fortunate students have even been offered jobs on the spot, based on their interviews.
“It has been a really enjoyable experience for the employers and for the kids,” she said.
