Companies Sought for Inaugural Career Fair

Career Fair

The Patuxent Partnership is seeking companies to participate in its inaugural Spark! Student Career Awareness Fair. The fair will be held March 30 and aims to spark students’ interest in career opportunities available in St. Mary’s County. TPP wants to showcase jobs/career paths that 10th- and 11th-grade students can consider for their future.

8am to 2pm Thursday, March 30, 2023
University of Maryland at Southern Maryland SMART Building
44219 Airport Drive, California MD

By registering, companies agree to have interactive, hands-on, demonstrative booths. The more students can actively participate, the better. This is not a job fair with recruiters handing out job postings. TPP wants students to have an engaging experience, while learning about potential careers, to include understanding the path required to get there. Register here.

The Spark! fair is funded by the SoMD 2030 Workforce Development initiative.
