Career Fair at Beacon High School - Booming With Businesses - Join In For 2017

Beacon High School's Career Day was teeming with businesses last year in 2016, and they are actively booking visiting pros again for this year's event, to be held on Thursday, May 25, 2017. Last year, over 70 professionals in their fields set up information tables at Beacon High School to explain to students the ins and outs of their work. Students checked in throughout the day, during scheduled time periods between 10 am and 2 pm. The Career Fair's main organizer and school counselor, Michele Polhamus, was "floored" by the turnout. "Our students' parents (from grades K-12) and the greater community were so responsive and have been most supportive of the Career Fair!"

The Career Fair is gearing up again for 2017 and is accepting business applicants. To participate, you can contact Ms. Michele Polhamus, School Counselor, at 845-838-6900 Ext. 3025 or by email at polhamus.m@beaconk12.org.
