Tyler ISD hosts first 'Opportunity Fair' for CTC students

April 25, 2018


Businesses from across the community recently participated in the inaugural Career and Technology Center (CTC) Opportunity Fair, where CTC students were able to learn about industry opportunities such as internships, part-time employment, job shadowing, and volunteerism.


During the event, 19 businesses and organizations provided approximately 1,200 CTC students with information on work-based learning opportunities available to them in the forms of internships, part-time jobs, summer jobs, mentorships, job shadowing opportunities and more. Students were also able to receive information on how they can complete the required hours needed toward the certifications or licensures they need before graduation.


“The Opportunity Fair introduced our students to new businesses and organizations they didn’t know existed prior to the event,” Jessica Brown, Tyler ISD career and technical education internship coordinator, said. “Students were able to practice their networking skills while learning about opportunities available to them during high school and after graduation.”


Business professionals were treated to a light breakfast and luncheon catered by CTC culinary arts students
