On Thursday, April 27, the Hononegah Community High School is hosting its annual Career and Education Fair. It’s designed to connect local  businesses and other partners with students and community members.

Building on the “Lunch & Learns” – which are monthly opportunities for all Hononegah students to learn about different career pathways and meet with business partners - the Hononegah Community High School invites all regional community members to attend the Hononegah Community High School Student Career and Education Fair. 

Representatives from over 50 local businesses and organizations from a variety of industries will be at Hononegah Community High School to interact with students and community members during this special event. Rockton-Roscoe News will be represented for the second time.

The Career and Education Fair will kick off at 6 p.m. and run until 8 p.m. Whether you're an adult looking for a new job or a student exploring internships or shadowing opportunities, or whether you simply want to discuss a potential future career, this is a great opportunity. Students have a chance to create or update their resume, dress to impress, and have some practice in professional communication about what makes them valuable assets.

Several of the participating organizations will be conducting onsite interviews for various positions. Students are encouraged to come ready to ask questions about career fields, potentially interview for their first job, or pursue new opportunities in fields that align with their interests. Wherever you are in your career, you're welcome to join us for this exciting event.

The Hononegah Community High School District serves approximately 1,900 students from the towns of Rockton, Roscoe, Shirland, and parts of South Beloit. The District provides an inspiring and challenging educational experience that promotes reflective critical thinking, civic engagement, and personal development.
