Regina Catholic High School students made their way to Miller Comprehensive High on Thursday, hoping to come out with some future career possibilities .
Saskatchewan’s largest career fair took place at the school with more than 100 displays, from SaskPolytechnic, the University of Regina, Regina Police, Fire and EMS and more speaking with students.
Richard Donnelly, the Practical and Applied Arts Consultant for Regina Catholic Schools said it’s not just the size of the fair that is impressive, but also the variety.
“We have literally everything from accounting to welding and about 100 different careers in between, it’s the largest one (Career Fair) in Saskatchewan, and so it really does give the students a chance to do some exploring and think about their futures,” Donnelly said.
When it comes to the impressive size, Donnelly said word of mouth, along with companies and post secondary education facilities taking advantage of the chance to speak to a large number of students at one time, are the major reasons for the fairs success.
“Some word of mouth has gone around based on the last year or two, but a lot of the others recognize the success of it, and they were excited about having almost 2,000 students come to Miller Comprehensive Catholic High School,” Donnelly added.
More than 1,500 students took in the fair when the day was done.
