Career and Job Fair Dec. 2019

Career and Job Fair December 6, 2019

  • Unified School District No. 232, along with the Eudora and school district, will host its second annual career and job fair for high school junior and senior students on December 6, 2019 at De Soto High School.

    Partnering with several local, regional and national companies and businesses, the school districts will expose more than 800 juniors and seniors to dozens of jobs and career fields within the Kansas City metropolitan area. The fair is part of the district’s goal to better prepare students for life after high school by connecting business and industry directly with students.

    USD 232 believes all students should possess the skills necessary to succeed in postsecondary education, in the attainment of an industry recognized certification, or in the workforce. The career and job fair is just one way to expand students’ knowledge and understanding of what is possible for their future.

    Kansans are demanding higher standards in academic skills, as well as employability and citizenship skills, and the need to move away from a “one-size-fits-all” system that relies exclusively on state assessments. This vision for education in Kansas calls for a more student-focused system that provides support and resources for individual success and will require everyone to work together to make it a reality. 

    The high school career and job fair will allow the business community to develop early connections with students with the potential for internships and/or future job openings.
