Countywide Virtual Job Fair in April
April 22, 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
Need New Talent? Need Work? Connect Here!
Thriving businesses looking for eager new hires have an opportunity to connect with the workforce at a two-part virtual job/career fair April 22.
The award-winning Future Career Academy (FCA) that began at Plant City High School has become so successful it now includes seniors in all Hillsborough County public high schools. The program teaches non-college-bound students, who opt into the program, how to prepare for and find meaningful work, training, certifications, internships and jobs with lifelong growth potential right out of high school. Businesses gain prepared, competent young workers who remain in the county and contribute to building industries and the area’s economic wellbeing.
The Future Career Academy is proud to present the 2021 Future Career Fair for its students and local businesses. This year, it will happen virtually, in conjunction with CareerSource Tampa Bay, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 22.
Because of the tremendous response from a wide range of companies, industries, apprenticeships, branches of the U.S. military and other sponsors, this year’s virtual fair is open to Future Career Academy seniors at all participating high schools countywide. (Pre-COVID, each school with a Future Career Academy hosted an in-person event for just their students and region.)
The 2021 Future Career Fair also will serve adult members of our community with a two-hour event. The majority of the day, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., will be dedicated to student job searchers, while 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. will be reserved for members of the general public. All job seekers, regardless of age, should visit www.thefuturecareeracademy.com for more information and to register in advance.
Very similar to a face-to-face job fair, where people walk up to each booth, gather brochures and ask questions, at this virtual event, seekers will be able to search the online-event site (by industry, location, minority- and women-owned businesses), view videos and visit websites.
Student and adult searchers will be able to see participating companies’ names, logos and a list of available jobs. They can submit their information and get in a queue to talk with the hiring manager.
If you’re hiring and have jobs available, don’t miss this opportunity to sign up today at www.thefuturecareeracademy.com. Click on “To Register to Participate and Sponsor.” You will find information there for a variety of partnership and sponsorship opportunities.
