To the Editor:
Though a little belated, the Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Business Education departments at MVRHS acknowledge and sincerely thank the following businesses that took place in our Spring Job Fair:
ACE MV, Basics/Eastaway, The Black Dog, The Harbor View Hotel, Hertz, Island Grown Schools and Island Grown Initiative, Johnny Cupcakes, Menemsha Blues, MV Insurance Agency, Right Fork Diner, Stop & Shop, Tisbury Farm Market/Vineyard Grocer, and Vineyard Vines.
For the second year in a row, about 100 students had the opportunity to apply for jobs and do “on the spot interviews” with local businesses hiring for the season or for year-round employment. To have this opportunity in a familiar location (this year, our cafeteria) takes away some of the jitters a young job-seeker experiences. In addition, the fair provides the CTE department the chance to build stronger relationships with Island businesses that often take on roles as mentors for the juniors and seniors involved in our School to Careers program. The support the Island shows our students is always so amazing.
