Ridgeland Hardeeville High School students, faculty and administration would like to thank representatives from the companies and agencies listed above who participated in the career fair on Tuesday, November 1st. Several Jasper County Schools alumni participated and were eager to share their career success with students in grades 9-12. The career fair provided opportunities for students to get first-hand information about these companies from a representative. Students learned about the importance of developing excellent career skills, building strong resumes/cover letters, and how to make a positive and lasting impression at job interviews to distinguish yourself from other candidates.
In celebration of National Career Development month, Mrs. Cheryl Dopson, Director of Guidance, Ms. Cynthia Hasty, School Counselor, and Ms. Cynthia Robino, Career Specialist, coordinated classroom presentations for 700 students.
