On Tuesday, April 9, the SDOC, in partnership with the Oconee Economic Alliance, will sponsor a job fair for Oconee’s seniors.  The job fair will be held at Foothills Community Church, and we are inviting over 30 businesses/companies/industries to be on site to answer questions and to accept resumes from students interested in summer and/or full time employment.  Our focus will be on manufacturing, construction and healthcare fields; however, there will be some representatives from retail and fast food.  This fair will be particularly valuable for those students who may not have solid post-secondary plans in place at this time.  If interested, students may get more information and a permission form from Mr. Bearden in the guidance office at HCC or in the guidance office of their home school.  Please see attached permission form, which is due March 29.
