Invitation-Only Event

Columbiana, AL 35051

The Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce will be hosting its 2nd Annual Career Awareness Fair for all Shelby County 10th grade students from 8:00AM until 3:00PM on Monday, September 12 and Tuesday, September 13 at the Shelby County Exhibition Center in Columbiana.

The program is an opportunity for business professionals to share 1/2 day or one day with students on the education, training requirements, salary range, workplace expectations and more to be employed in 16 career clusters identified by the State Board of Education in Alabama. During their time at the “Career Awareness Fair” each student will visit 3 pre-selected clusters.

Our plan is to have 2 different presenters (volunteers) from a different occupation for each cluster at each session. Each presenter will have roughly 8-10 minutes to share information with the group of students focusing on these factors:

1) Career (i.e. what do you do every day)
2) Educational requirements for your career field
3) Salary ranges
4) What can these students do now to help prepare them to be successful in their pursuit of a career in this field – and a better employee (or business owner) in the future.

We have also allowed time for a question & answer period after the two presenters have completed their presentation.
