An annual event held in partnership with the Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and the six Greater Peninsula school divisions, the goal of the Expo is to educate students about the amazing diversity of career opportunities in our region and the skills needed to acquire those jobs.
Over 250 volunteers from numerous industries, partners, localities conducted mock interviews with students to help them sharpen their interviewing skills. As part of the interviews, students are provided feedback on their appearances, interview skills and resumes.
Over 60 exhibitors from the region’s best companies will participate from nearly every sector of business including Shipbuilding, Advanced Manufacturing, Government-Public Safety, Finance, Construction, Hospitality, STEM, Defense-Aerospace, Education, Automotive, Green Jobs, Healthcare and Transportation.
The Expo is a great opportunity for businesses to connect with their future workforce and encourage students to acquire the skills they need to be successful in the workplace.
