Berkeley County School District is hosting a career conference for high school students Jan. 7.
The conference, co-sponsored by Berkeley Electric Cooperative and Santee Cooper, takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Stratford High School, 951 Crowfield Blvd. in Goose Creek. Speakers and businesses are invited to participate.
The BCSD Career Conference aims to make students aware of the numerous career opportunities available in the region, including full-time future careers, summer jobs, apprenticeships and similar work. It will also include information about the skills needed to be employable. Some employers will offer opportunities for students to sign up for summer jobs, part-time work and internships.
Opportunities are available for businesses and speakers to help teach students about employment opportunities. Workshop opportunities could cover topics such as social media skills, building a resume and general employment tips.
To participate or to learn more about how you or your business can support the program, please contact Sonya Addison-Stewart at email@example.com. More information and a link for businesses or speakers to register are available at http://berkeleysc.org/chamber/bcsd-career-conference/.
